The frontman said his time in the Caribbean had been an "eye-opening experience" and slammed indie bands for failing to match the innovative styles of hip-hop and dance hall in recent years.

"I've had a great time hanging out making music with the Marley family and designing Jamaican-themed trainers," this according a story published in the Daily Star out of England.

"I went to Jamaica at the beginning of January so I've not had to suffer too much from the cold. It's been an eye-opening experience.

"It's good to go to other places. I mean can you name me a truly innovative British indie guitar band of the last 20 years? All the real innovation has come from hip-hop and Jamaican dance hall.

"I think if anything British music is retro. Nu rave is evidence of that. When you go abroad people just laugh at Britain. They say we're living in a time warp."
