The band insisted that being from Barbados has set them apart from other acts and that their culture is a big influence on their music.
"I definitely think being from Barbados sets us apart, that's who we are - we're all about being ourselves and we don't care if it's considered cool or not," singer Amanda Reifer told BANG Showbiz.
"We are Bajans so our culture will always be a big influence on us. It's an advantage and it's a disadvantage at the same time because the charts are driven by dance music right now.
"There aren't that many instrument bands in the UK at the moment. We just write what we like; it's not typical four-to-the-floor music every time."
She added: "I'm not sure it always fits in, but the most important thing is to stand out and leave an impression.''
Cover Drive are currently in the recording studio writing the follow-up to their debut album Bajan Style and have described the new material as "very interesting and intricate".
