Lawson compare vibe of debut album to Adele’s '21'
Lawson have compared the vibe of their upcoming debut album to that of Adele’s '21.'
The pop/rock quartet, who release new single, ‘Taking Over Me,’ tomorrow, told MTV News that like the BRIT Award winner’s multi-million seller, their first studio effort was also inspired by a break-up, in this case, frontman Andy Brown’s break-up with The Saturdays’ Mollie King.
Brown said: "When it ended, a lot of inspiration was taken from it to the write the songs, so a lot of the songs on the album are about that.
"I don’t think Mollie should be worried, it’s sort of like the way Adele wrote songs about her ex when he broke up with her, so it’s got the same sort of vibe."
However, the ‘When She Was Mine’ hitmakers, who recently claimed they were nothing like One Direction, went on to reveal that despite the similar subject matter, the songs aren’t as melancholic as the likes of 'Someone Like You' and 'Turning Tables.'
Drummer Adam Pitts said: "The songs are not all sad like Adele's, the musicality of them are a lot more upbeat, even if the lyrics are still kind of sad."
