James Righton on stealing Amy Winehouse’s thunder, ABBA and life as Mr Keira Knightley

  • In 2007, James Righton’s South London-based “New Rave” outfit the Klaxons surprised everyone by taking home the 2007 Mercury Music Prize for their debut album Myths of the Near Future, which had reached number two in the charts and contained the hit single Golden Skans. They even beat Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black. But then the only way was down for the indie darlings, who split in 2015 after their second and third albums failed to keep up the momentum of their breakout success.
