Friendly Fires' new album is nearly finished and will be a "lot thicker" than their debut.

The British indie-dance group are halfway through recording their second album, and have completed five songs, which they describe as "more focussed" then their self titled debut.

Lead singer Ed Macfarlane told BBC news: "We've got about five tracks done already. It's sounding really good. I can't wait to start playing it live.

"We've been running things through tape and trying new ways of recording things. We've been doing more of that, but we're not doing some sort of concept record where it's going to be one specific sound or style."

The group have also been videoing themselves ready for a series of podcasts about the band, but Ed said fans shouldn't expect to see any debauched behavior from the band, which also includes Jack Savidge

and Edd Gibson.

He added: "I think they represent the realist view. It's not us hanging out on yachts, drinking with loads of groupies. That just doesn't happen. Most of it is sat in airports waiting to play a show.

"I think it works for some bands like us. But if you're Prince you probably don't want to be filming yourself making breakfast, you want to maintain some kind of mysticism.

"We're not that sort of band so we can get away with it."
