Video: Bombay Bicycle Club - 'Our Electronic Direction Will Shock People'

Bombay Bicycle Club have spoken about their plans for the follow-up to 'A Different Kind Of Fix' and have said they believe their next studio LP may well "shock" people.

Speaking to NME at last weekend's T In The Park in a video which you can see at the top of the page, the four-piece said that they had made a solid start on new material and were planning to start debuting new songs in their live shows in the autumn.

Asked how much progress they'd made and when people could expect their fourth album to come out, singer Jack Steadman said: "We've started. We've got four songs now, which are pretty much ready. We're feeling very positive about it. We haven't thought about that [a release date] yet, but we're going to start playing new material live on our next tour in the States and from then on."

Then asked about how it would sound, drummer Suren de Saram said: "There's a couple that are quite heavily influenced by electronica. That could be a bit of a shock to some people. I can see the album being a bit like the last one, with a wide range of diverse influences, rather than one big electronic thing."

Steadman then added: "I don't see it being all crazy dance music, which is what it is at the moment".

The singer also spoke about his previous statement that he was nervous about making a new album and said he felt that most talk about any band's new album before they've made a start on it is "meaningless".

He added: "Whenever you begin the process of writing a new album, you always end up talking loads of shit. People ask you how you're feeling about it and it's all becomes meaningless. As the process goes on, the things you were worried about before just disappear."

Bombay Bicycle Club play this weekend's Benicassim Festival and later on this summer play Reading And Leeds Festivals. They will also open up for Blur at their Hyde Park show on August 12.
