Little Mix's debut album has ''dark and spooky'' tracks on it.

The 'Wings' group - Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall - have been working on their debut and promise they will give a glimpse at their darker side in some of the tracks they have written

Jesy said: ''We wrote most of the songs ourselves and there are a few surprises. A couple of the tracks are dark and spooky.''

Jesy is also hoping the band can replicate the success of their idols Spice Girls, who famously brought the notion of Girl Power in pop to the world in the 90s and inspired a generation of youngsters.

She added to Look magazine: ''I want us to be the next Spice Girls, I Hope we can do for girls what they did for us.''

The group have got off to a good start, as their record label boss - the notoriously hard to please Simon Cowell - was very impressed when he heard their debut single.

Leigh-Ann said: ''We went to see him and played him 'Wings'. I was so starstruck, we were all in shock, but he loved it. The one word he used was, 'Genius'.''
