Klaxons | new album: Myths Of The Near Future

HMV describes Klaxons as "acid-rave sci-fi punk-funk", while on their MySpace page they are described as 'Screamo / Happy Hardcore / Pop'. Along with Shitdisco they are one of the bands dubbed part of the 'New Rave' movement, a term coined by Angular Records founder Joe Daniel who released their first single. Although the accessible side of their sound shows the influence of the art rock explosion of the 2000s, they pretend to draw upon some less common influences, notably the rave culture of the 1990s, which they appropriate and redefine in what they think is a post-modern fashion.
