"It’s all to play for in terms of a new sound"
Crystal Fighters have opened up on recent single ‘Boomin In Your Jeep’, as well as what their fans can expect from their next album.
The ‘Plage’ stars returned with the new single last month, a summery anthem which marks their first new release since 2016’s ‘Everything Is My Family’.
Describing the reaction to the new track, singer Sebatian ‘Bast’ Pringle told NME: “we’re psyched just to see how it builds, you know. I think with tunes these days it takes a while for it to build, like maybe a couple of weeks for people to hear it and if people like it, continue to build. We’re really excited about it, we still love the tune, and it’s been cooking for six months or so.”
And while a fourth album might not have surfaced just yet, Pringle has teased that it will see the band exploring a “new sound” altogether.
“To be honest, we’ve written a lot of music for this new album already and we haven’t decided what is going to be exactly on there yet, and some of it will be reactive to how these tunes go down, how they sort of sit with us and with the new stuff that we need to start finishing”, Pringle explained.
“It’s all to play for in terms of a new sound, so we’re excited with the new label and they have a different take on what they like about stuff, and so it’s just an interesting process right now.”
With the group gearing up for a summer of busy festival appearances, Pringle also described the joy of taking their sound on the road.
“The festivals are our favourite time of year, just getting our music out there whether it be the old songs or more recent stuff and just finding ways to blend the music from different eras”, he admitted.
“We always try and put that energy into the music when we’re in the studio, that sort of dancing energy, that desire, you want to move when you hear it. Just threading that together in the live set is the most fun part.”
