Melodically, there are things we have in common with those bands, but I’m not sure we have embraced the entire aesthetic of Mumford and Sons. The things we share are a life-affirming aspect in spite of darker lyrical content, and the music comes alive at shows and stuff, but I hope that the new record pulls us away from that world. It’s a slightly frustrating comparison because I don’t hate those bands but I don’t aspire to be like them in any way. I was trying to be very diplomatic but I fucking hate that band and don’t want to be associated with them. I thought the first record did something that I appreciated, but with the second they were just shoveling the same shit. And that’s one of the reasons we’re trying to separate ourselves, because it’s a huge insult to someone who’s invested in the band to give them more of the same.
