Jimmy Brown - 23rd Oct 2014

There's a strobe warning at the start of Tom Beard's video for Klaxons -and they are not kidding around. The ensuing visuals for A New Reality has to be one of the most intense uses of strobing (and strobe-like FX) ever seen in a video. 

Like the song, the video pulses relentlessly - both ice-cool (its bathed in a blue hue) and experimental. But you might want to wear shades while you watch it.
