With their UK headline tour coming to a close, Klaxons have been the talk of the internet over the weekend after their controversial video for recent single ‘Twin Flames’ leaked last week. Dubbed “an epically disgusting body horror fantasia” by Pitchfork, the video has already notched up thousands of plays on various Youtube accounts before each being suspended for breaching their rules.
Director Saam Farahmand, famed for his groundbreaking creations, explained; “The song is synonymous with the 1989 Brian Yuzna film ‘Society’, which inspired me as a child and is uncredited as informing some of the art and films we know today. The video is a homage to ‘Society'”.
Farahmand was also responsible for the celestial video to ‘Echoes’, the first single from Klaxons’ new album ‘Surfing The Void’, which was released to worldwide acclaim in August.
On working with him again, Klaxons’ Jamie Reynolds said “As ever our director Saam Farahmand has taken what stems from an innocent discussion regards the meaning of the song and turned it into a visual playground – his finest work to date”.
