Peace frontman Harry Koisser has revealed that the band are working on a new David Bowie-inspired new album.

The Birmingham band appear inside this week's NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now. They feature as part of a rundown of 100 albums to look forward to in 2014 containing exclusive studio reports and photos.

Speaking to NME about his band's second album, the follow up to 2013's 'In Love', Koisser says that touring the world and Bowie have inspired his "fuzzy, sexy groove rock" songs. Discussing a "comeback" single he wrote and recorded in November 2013, Koisser says he tried to recreate the sound of an orchestra on a 12-string guitar. He admitted: "That came from listening to 'Ziggy Stardust...' on repeat."

Meanwhile, broadening their horizons beyond Birmingham and the Midlands has also informed new Peace songs.

Koisser said: "I'm more inspired on the road than I ever was at home. I'd never seen anything up until touring i'd never even seen England. Now we've been to Japan and America seeing other cultures."
