AlunaGeorge were drawn together by their love Radiohead and admit they have no intention of parting ways to go solo because they have so much fun together

AlunaGeorge were drawn together by their love of Radiohead.

The electric duo - singer Aluna Francis and producer George Reid - have gained popularity for their edgy image and obscure rhythms, but the 24-year-old frontwoman believes their admiration for the English rock band was the main reason they bonded as a music couple.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "Musically, we were pulled together by Radiohead, that's the band that we both love.

"We both liked Jeff Buckley, too. But then we part ways slightly -- George likes a lot of soul music and I like girl pop or full-on dance music."

The pair - who have scored a Number two for their feature on Disclosure's 'White Noise' - insist they have no intention of parting ways and going solo because they have too much fun together.

Aluna explained: " I don't have any interest in it. I've never considered it. I like that rapport and space you create and you see what's going to happen. I'm very much interested in what can be got from collaborations. I personally love having George by my side all the time."

She added: "I got on with George straight away, we had a nice rapport. We didn't talk much about what music we liked, we just communicated through the music."
