Welcome to time and space according to Klaxons.
The London indie rock band has dropped the video for ‘There Is No Other Time’, the first cut from their third album Love Frequency. Seriously, this song is a tune.
I don’t know what on earth happened with their last album but this new single, which is a collaboration with English producers Gorgon City, is a proper hit candy.
Director Georgia Hudson – who brought us MØ‘s ‘Don’t Wanna Dance’ video – gave the song a modern disco visual treatment.
It’s a stylish production filled with rapid cuts of bodies dancing under neon lights, the band (blink-and-you’ll-miss-it) and various cues of time and space.
It’s not something you necessarily pick up in the first play, but I love how the video opens with frames of a vast open landscape (the beach with seagulls) then slowly digress into tight and intimate close ups of body parts moving in a club.

Klaxons‘ ‘There Is No Other Time’ is out now and there is also a remix bundle, if you’re so inclined.
The band will release their first album in four years – Love Frequency – on 2 June. The project features collaborations with Tom Rowlands (Chemical Brothers), James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) and London-based DJ Erol Alkan.
