MGMT singer surfing through second album
Andrew VanWyngarden ha started surfing while MGMT record in Malibu.
MGMT hitting the surf while recording MGMT front Andrew VanWyngarden has taken up surfing while recording the band's new album.

Speaking to the San Francisco Examiner, the vocalist explained that he dreamed "a lot" about surfing while MGMT debut Oracular Spectacular was being made in 2007, although he had never taken part in the sport.

However, VanWyngarden added that recording his new work - Congratulations - in Malibu gave him the opportunity to surf in the Pacific and inspired him to tackle more challenging breaks such as Maroubra in Australia.

In addition, the singer told the newspaper that MGMT's upcoming record is "pretty dark", despite his new interest in surfing.

"It's us trying to deal with all the craziness that's been going on since our last album took off. Sometimes it just doesn't feel natural," he said.

Last month, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder told BBC presenter Zane Lowe that he tends to spend no more than 30 minutes penning the lyrics to the band's songs.
