Diamond Rings' John O'Regan has revealed he has begun work on the follow up to last year's 'Free Dimensional', and it might not follow up the pop format.

O'Regan told Exclaim he was hoping to write longer tracks with solid beats and bass lines, to get people moving. He also said he had been informed by a lot more music since he has started to DJ.

"I want to be more patient as a writer and a producer and make things go on a little longer. That's also been partly influenced by playing shows over the last year with a band and writing with a better understanding of what kind of parts would be best for a group to play."

Diamond Rings has recently been on tour with OMD across his native Canada and America.
