Paradise City Festival 2018

Back in 2007 the NME posed the following question: “What would happen if WhoMadeWho got serious?” It was around this time that the Danish trio of Tomas Høffding, Jeppe Kjellberg and Tomas Barfod – having released just one album – were drafted in as very last minute replacements to open that year's Benacassim festival after the Klaxons were delayed by a grounded plane. Bounding onto the stage sporting skeleton outfits, they shouted, “Hello, we’re the Klaxons! From Denmark!” Hence the question. Fast-forward six years and it all seems completely moot – their forthcoming fifth album, Dreams, is not only the sound of a band getting very serious indeed, it's also one of the best indie-dance albums to emerge in years.
