Los Angeles: Folk rock band Mumford and Sons might use an electric guitar or synthesizer on their next album to follow up their critically-acclaimed effort `Babel`.

The band`s latest album is doing very well in the charts, and has earned them six Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Americana Album, reported Ace Showbiz.

But it is not keeping the group from exploring an arrangement different from their usual folksy rock sound.

The members of the English rock band have revealed that despite their recent success, they won`t be resting on their laurels and that they`re already back at work on their next album, saying they might use an electric guitar or synthesizer this time.

Frontman Marcus Mumford said, "We`re not going to be the band that stands for folk music or for organic music. We`ve always done what feels good, rather than what we`ve thought long and hard about, and we`ll do whatever feels soulful next, whether that`s with an electric guitar or a synthesizer."

Fellow vocalist and keyboardist Ben Lovett added, "It`s dangerous for us to talk about what we`ve been discussing for the third album, but we do have greater ambitions not to just stay within certain sonic confines."

The band may be a bit more experimental for their third album, considering they have received some criticism for their second album `Babel` sounding quite similar to their debut studio set `Sigh No More`.
