"It quite different it's still going to be the same kind of roots but we've been getting involved with using different instrumentation and things like that but it's still going to be Kooks," Luke Pritchard told XFM.
He added: "Personally I've always had a real thing of keeping it really organic but this album we're quite Beck influenced in a way, using loops - live drum takes but looping it - I've got quite obsessed with this David Lynch-y eerie synthesiser thing."
