Dirty Pretty Things broaden the spectrum

From BBC Newsbeat:

Dirty Pretty Things are promising fans they've come up with something different in their second album, which is due out following a short tour of the UK.

Tentatively titled This Is Where The Truth Begins, bass player Didz Hammond admits there has been some internal wranglings over the name.
He said: "Yeah, Four Egos and a Mouse came up again”.
"It's a bit more diverse record. There are a lot more factors and characteristics to it than the last record.
"It's not a jingle-jangle record."
Their debut album Waterloo To Anywhere went top three in the UK with a hit single Bang, Bang, You're Dead also going top five.
Singer Carl Barat reckons the new album is a very different affair.
He said: "The first album was rushed. This album, there's a lot more perspective to it.
"It's a lot broader in the spectrum."
Didz agrees: "It's not just a guitar record which is what I meant by jingle-jangle."
Dirty Pretty Things kick off their UK tour in Glasgow on 14 May and finish in Brighton on 28 May.
