Even when we try to reinvent our sound, we still sound like us. [Laughs.] We have a certain kind of aesthetic principle we apply when we write our music; a certain use of beat and melodies. We always try to get an emotion out, we’ve always liked melancholy music which is great because Sarah' s [Cracknell] voice is pretty distinct too.
