Simian Mobile Disco's harder sound
Simian Mobile Disco are working toward a more heavy "club sound" for their third album.
The electronic duo - which was formed from the ashes of indie rock group Simian - admitted they are hoping to change they are seen as a dance pop group, as their musical tastes have changed "drastically" to become more influenced by techno music.
They explained: "We are consciously trying to change how people perceive us at the moment, mainly because our tastes have changed quite drastically as we've been exposed to more and more club music. It may take some fans of our early stuff a while to get their heads around our new stuff but in general, the reaction has been really positive."
Simian Mobile Disco, which includes producer James Ford - who has worked alongside Klaxons, Arctic Monkeys and Florence and the Machine - and Jas Shaw said they are presently working on a third album, but still keeping their Delicacies record label "ticking over".
They added to website BeatPortal.com: "We are starting to work on a new Simian Mobile Disco album as we speak but we plan to keep Delicacies ticking over as an outlet for the darker clubbier side of what we do.
"We always try to make our albums something you would want to listen to at home rather than at 6am in a darkened club. Having said that, I do think our next album will be influenced by the Delicacies stuff we have been making."Posted on 2 Sep 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
