Singer and guitarist Romy Madley Croft said the new songs show the evolution of the band over the past few years.
“I’ve been thinking that I hope people enjoy it as a separate thing. The first album exists – we’re not trying to make it again. We’ve just grown up, and although this isn’t a ‘grown up’ album, we’ve evolved. It’s just us growing a bit more. I hope people enjoy it as a continuation, rather than us trying to make the first album again”.
She added that although she’s “happy we’ve progressed” the new material is “not prog rock”. The band have been largely silent during the making of the album, other than revealing it would be influenced by “club music” and posting regular YouTube embeds on their blog.
