The Wanted admitted they originally want to be a rock band

The Wanted band member Jay McGuiness has admitted that he expected the group would develop into a more "rocky" sound.

He admitted that initially they were not planning to be a dance-orientated act.

Jay told Digital Spy: "We always thought we were gonna go more rocky with time, but that just hasn't happened.

"I mean, rock music just isn't selling a lot right now. I don't know. I guess it changes with time."

Discussing whether they would attempt rapping, McGuiness laughed saying the band don't have enough rhythm to carry it off.

He said: "We were working with Guy Chambers on an almost Robbie Williams-type song, and Tom tried a little bit on that, but no. We didn't fit into it.

"Maybe we'll develop into it more over time. We could probably go garage, but we couldn't go hip-hop because you really need some sense of rhythm."


The Wanted's single Chasing the Sun will be available in the UK on Mary 21.
