Isle of Wight Festival headliners want to emulate Radiohead

Isle of Wight Festival headline act Kasabian have stated that they are aiming to emulate Radiohead with their latest album.

Speaking to NME, guitarist and songwriter Serge Pizzorno explained that while the sounds of the two groups may be totally different, he wants the feeling the listener gets to be similar to that offered by the Oxford band's classic record OK Computer.

"I want to aim for something that's as incredible as that, just the feeling of being blown away that you get from that," he said.

Pizzorno added that he is looking forward to people hearing the new album - which will be Kasabian's fourth - and getting excited about seeing them live at the Isle of Wight Festival and their other gigs.

Kasabian will be closing the 2011 Isle of Wight Festival on June 12th, while other major acts on the bill include Pulp, Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, The Script, Iggy and the Stooges, Manic Street Preachers and Public Image Ltd.
