Klaxons The London-based Klaxons include Steffan Halperin, Jamie Reynolds, James Righton, and Simon Taylor as their members. Despite being a rock band at the core, they're heavily influenced by dance music -- especially the late-'80s/early-'90s U.K. rave movement. By the time they released their second low-key single, they had nonetheless become a favorite of the NME and wound up signing with Polydor. As the group worked on its first album, the Modular label issued the brief singles compilation Xan Valleys (in late 2006). ~ Andy Kellman, All Music Guide
