With Klaxons having split some 4 years ago, frontman James Righton has decided to go it alone and release a solo album, The Performer. He has been busy since Klaxons demise, releasing music with Shock Machine and playing with Arctic Monkeys. The music on this album takes its cues from places you might not expect - Roxy Music, The Beach Boys, R.E.M. and Nick Lowe. The album explores how fatherhood has changed him as he considers if he’s now living two separate lives - one as dad, one as The Performer.
