The Horrors played two new songs as they headlined the final day of Truck Festival in Oxfordshire last night (July 20).

The first, entitled 'First Day Of Spring', came halfway through the band's set and had a slight electronic dance tinge to it. The second, 'Elixir Spring', was much longer, with a thundering bassline and psychedelic edge. Neither song was introduced to the audience.

The rest of the band's 10-song set featured selections from their second and third albums, 'Primary Colours' and 'Skying'. Opening with 'Mirrors Image', frontman Faris Badwan told the crowd: "This is our first time at Truck Festival but I won't go on about it" - a reference to Billy Lunn's stage patter during The Subways' set, which preceded The Horrors.

After finishing on 'Still Life' and 'Moving Further Away', the frontman told the crowd: "Thank you very much, we really appreciate it. I genuinely mean that, it's just hard for me to sound like it."

Earlier in the day, Supergrass' Gaz Coombes played a solo set, which was mostly made up of his own material. Towards the end, however, he introduced 'Moving' as "a song I wrote with Supergrass" to huge cheers. Sam Duckworth, who used to be known as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, also played on the Main Stage in the late afternoon, dedicating some of his set to "Arsenal fans who are worried about having a biting racist join their team" after talking about morality having gone out of football.

The Horrors played:

'Mirror's Image'
'Who Can Say'
'Scarlet Fields'
'Endless Blue'
'First Day Of Spring'
'Sea Within A Sea'
'Dive In'
'Elixir Spring'
'Still Life'
'Moving Further Away'
