The Horrors have revealed that they have "moved in a more electronic direction" on their new album.

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

Speaking about the follow up to 2011 album 'Skying', band member Rhys Webb reveals the group have continued to change their sound in a way that has become their trademark since starting out. Promising that the currently untitled record has "moved in a more electronic direction", Webb says: "We've been experimenting with sound processing, sequencers and rhythm. We want to make music you can dance to, music that elevates. It feels like the next step to us."

However, Webb was keen to play down the comparison guitarist Joshua Hayward made in august 2012 when he said the band's new material sounded like '70s band Hawkwind. "One of the conversations we had after the last record was about moving in a slightly heavier direction. That's happened in a way, but not in the sense that people would expect. It's not heavy in the sort of way that referencing Hawkwind might suggest."
