Single Review: Klaxons – Twin Flames

By on Monday, 25th October 2010 at 12:00 pm
 

Klaxons‘ latest single, ‘Twin Flames’, is being released today. It’s the second single from ‘Surfing the Void’, following first single ‘Echoes’ (watch the video here) that was released in August. When I first heard ‘Echoes’, I found it very rough and screechy. This time around with ‘Twin Flames’, the feeling is more melodic and as some reviewers before me have pointed out already, ‘Twin Flames is significantly more radio-friendly.

It’s a love song all right, but how it conveys love is a more difficult thing to explain. From a lyrical standpoint, it’s words put deliciously together for the reader to comprehend however they want:

twin flames in our hearts
as we turn towards our very start
twin flames in our minds
when we move emotions multiply…
twin flames in our hearts
as we move you can’t tell us apart
twin flames in our minds
when we move together…

Quite lovely. I’m still not sold on Klaxons’ 2007 Mercury-Prize winning album ‘Myths of the New Future’, but perhaps ‘Surfing the Void’ deserves a listen if you haven’t heard it yet.

7.5/10

Klaxons are touring the UK in November; dates in Cambridge (17 November) and Oxford (18 November) have been added since our original post in late August and have been updated.
