As they journey further into the realm of EDM with their third album, Love Frequency, British indie rockers Klaxons have brought along some help. Namely, their recent single “Children of the Sun” was produced by The Chemical Brothers’ own Tom Rowlands, who helped push the band’s pulsating rhythms into the upper stratosphere. Now, the band has again enlisted Rowlands, this time to remix the album’s title track.
Like a disco anthem from Neptune, dense chimes and heavy-handed drums reverberate around an especially exuberant soundscape of come-hither harmonies, chunky synths, and random sci-fi studio effects. If you approved of Rowlands’ work and influence on “Children of the Sun”, just consider this its sweat-soaked, slightly provocative cousin. Listen in below:
Rowland’s remix, alongside one from DJ Erol Alkan, will be released as a 12-inch on April 14th via Phantasy Sound. Pre-orders are ongoing.
Love Frequency is due out June 9th via Akashic Records.
