With Bat For Lashes being the favourite to win, at the ceremony held at London's Grovenor House on Tuesday 4 September 2007, when the winner was announced by Jools Holland at 10:15pm, despite being regarded as rank outsiders by the bookies, they won.

There is no band like Klaxons.

Their lyrics are inspired by old mythology and things like that, and it is absolutely amazing to listen to their songs and imagine yourself in those stories. The best example would be 'Isle of Her' from their first album, Myths of the Near Future
