"I’ve been into classical music for ages but it’s really only on [Queen’s album, A Night at the Opera], it’s started to express itself in a way that’s within the rock. Queen are a classic English band. I think we sound very English, a little experimental, a bit weird. Hopefully we’re in the same vein as bands like Queen, Bowie. I can’t think of any other English bands at the moment doing music that diverse, trying to push the boundaries. There’s no fear in what we do."
