Drenge have said their new matieral will have "a lot more choruses", in an interview with Gigwise.

The Best New Band winners at this year's NME Awards with Austin, Texas released their self-titled debut LP in August 2013. Frontman Eoin Loveless told NME late last year he and brother Rory were using any spare time they got to write new tracks.

Speaking about the follow-up to 'Drenge', which is yet to be recorded, Loveless told Gigwise: "It's much more positive. There's a song with a major chord and there are a lot more choruses. On our first record, I think there's only one official chorus."

He continued: "We've just found this new stream of songwriting where we're playing something moody, then we'll burst into this major key-change. I think it's a lot more positive, we'll probably start wearing bright colours," adding wryly "It's radio-friendly, we're going to hit up America and break that market."

Drenge will perform at the NME & PRS For Music present: Official SXSW Showcase in Austin, Texas on March 15 alongside Fat White Family, Temples, Splashh and more.
