The Drums have confessed that they turned down the chance to collaborate with Florence and the Machine.

The up-and-coming US band refused the invitation from Florence Welch because it went against their image.

The group's frontman Jonathan Pierce told the Daily Record: "Florence sent us a couple of emails through her manager. We think she's a really cool girl. Out of all those girls making pop music, we think she's miles ahead of the rest.

"Collaborating with anyone is against what we want to do as a band, unless it is a once-in-a-lifetime thing with Edwyn Collins."

Pierce also revealed that despite rejecting a duet with the singer, Welch asked them to support her on her US tour.

"She's very nice and hand-selected us for the tour here and in the US," he added. "She's a smart girl, so she'll understand why we wouldn't collaborate. It's nothing personal."
