Niki And The Dove have spoken about their plans for their second studio album.

The Swedish duo released their debut album 'Instinct' on May 14 this year, but have now said that they are already thinking about its follow-up and are going to relocate to New York to work on the record.

Speaking to NME, multi-instrumentalist keyboardist Gustaf Karlöf said that after the band complete their US tour in support of Twin Shadow, they will remain in New York to write their second album.

Asked about new material and their second album, Karlöf said: "We're going to the States to do a support tour with Twin Shadow until the middle of October and after that we plan on staying in the States, in New York, and living there for a couple of months and writing new material."

He continued: "We don't really feel like the type of band who need a certain environment to write, we could do it in a dark room with no windows if need be, but if you can go to New York you should. We can meet new people and do new collaborations."

Then asked how he hoped their second album would sound, the keyboard player added: "I hope we can progress and I hope that we can keep the heart in it. I want to make something honest and without the pressure of anything else."

The band have spent the summer touring across Europe and most recently played well-received sets at Reading And Leeds Festivals.
