So it seems the this-week's-fad of new rave does have legs after all, as scene leaders Klaxons have announced details of their next single, due for release in January.
Not that we ever thought that people would grow tired of Klaxon's feverish punk-pop - call it whatever you like, but it's poppy-punk-rawk with a fast electro backbeat, and that's not 'rave' in my book - but the whole shove all these different-sounding bands into an inaccurate pigeonhole just 'cause you can dance to them thing's a bit, well, tired innit?
Anyway: the trio's new single will be 'Golden Skans', and it'll be released on January 22, exactly a week before their debut album, Myths Of The Near Future. Which is good, apparently. Mr Colin Roberts of DrownedinSound.com is certainly a fan.
The single will be backed by live versions of old single 'Atlantis To Interzone' and something called 'The Bouncer'. Are new-ravers well into cricket? Or soap opera dogs? Mint!
Next month's must-be genre: cricket-core.
