Klaxons will not employ the same "New Rave" sound that has been attached to their first album.
British act Klaxons is shifting gear in the sophomore effort. Guitarist Simon Taylor hinted that their new sound would be "prog".
Releasing the debut album in January, the three-piece band is back to writing mode for the second one. Within the process, the band discovers that there is a new vibe coming out of the way. "We've written the opener of the next album. We're thinking of making a prog album - like a huge tribal prog album. We've all been listening to bands in England like Caravan, so we're definitely making a big, prog album," Taylor said.
In other news, the band is seeking fans who can direct the video of their latest single "Totem On The Timeline". The band will judge the submitted videos and pick the winner.
