Mark Foster, frontman and namesake of 'Pumped Up Kicks' band Foster The People has revealed that his dance side-project will have an influence on the band's second album.
The singer and songwriter revealed that his Simms and Belle work with bandmate Isom Innis is helping to shape the sound of the follow up to the band's critically acclaimed Torches.
"In the first record, I was looking at my vision for the project through a piece of opaque glass. This next record's going to be more evolved; it's going to be a clearer picture of what I've had in my head when it comes to that vision," said Mark Foster in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. "Working on this project and getting deeper into electronic music is gonna help bring a deeper color in the next Foster record."
He also adds that his priority remains Foster The People, while Innis will focus more on Simms and Belle.
"Innis makes stuff a lot more in the electronic realm. He'll build foundational stuff for Smims and Belle and we'll come together while I'm doing foundational stuff for Foster the People," he adds.
Simms and Belle recently caught mainstream attention with their remix of Lana Del Rey's 'Blue Jeans' - which featured Azealia Banks. Listen to the remix below.
