Watch Klaxons perform There Is No Other Time and Invisible Forces

The group rework two tracks taken from their new album, Love Frequency, especially for our Guardian-Muzu.tv sessions

• Watch Klaxons perform Golden Skans and Show Me a Miracle

Earlier this week, Klaxons performed Golden Skans and Show Me a Miracle as part of the Guardian's Muzu.tv sessions. Here's the next pair of tracks, There Is No Other Time and Invisible Forces, which the band have reworked into sparse, acoustic versions.

Taken from their new album, Love Frequency, keyboardist and co-vocalist James Righton says that the band wanted to create songs that could “move you on the dance floor” whilst also retaining a core level of emotion.

“It’s the world we always flirted with but never wholeheartedly dived into,” says Righton on the move from rave pop into a more pure electronic dance music arena. “It’s keeping ourselves entertained, we’ve got quite mad attention spans, so it’s a very subconscious drive to improve what we do all the time, to change what we do and challenge ourselves to make interesting music.”

There Is No Other Time, the first single taken from the new album, is a collaborative effort with producers Gorgon City. “We went in knowing that they’re the guys who are making really bass-heavy music but also had one eye on making pop tunes," explains bassist and co-vocalist Jamie Reynolds. "They’d already had success with Ready For Your Love which was a massive tune. They were just fun, very fast and very contemporary and really cool.

“Invisible Forces I think we tried in eight or nine different formats until we got to the point where we realised we already had it in the beginning and we didn’t need to,” says Reynolds of the last song they played for their Muzu.tv sessions. “This album has very much been about songwriting and then going into the world of production. When the songs were finished, each one of them had that ‘wow factor’ and since then, and having heard it a hundred times, it’s still there. I’m very excited about other people having the chance to have that experience.”

Klaxons' latest is an anthemic, danceable affair with plenty of pie-eyed, space-cadet idiosyncrasies and a good deal of charm, writes Paul MacInnes

Klaxons

They are the darlings of the music press and their raucous live shows have caused teenagers to accidentally poke their own eyes out with glow sticks, but what will the Klaxons make of Depeche Mode and the Horrors?
