Multi platinum selling band The Kooks are back! After a successful mini tour in May, complete with a sold out show at The Electric Ballroom, and a thrilling surprise slot at Glastonbury, these guys are continuing to impress and woo fans with their latest offering, including the release of the video for their new single ‘Forgive and Forget’ out next month.
‘Forgive and Forget’ is a fusion of funk and soul, but their signature style of indie pop is still very much present and the euphoric chorus will ensure this will remain a top choice for our summer playlists.
The band have already given us a taster of what’s to come with their first single from their forthcoming fourth LP ‘Listen’ which was produced by young hip hop pioneer Inflo and Luke Pritchard, with Luke Pritchard stating: “To me this album is about pure expression”.
The first single ‘Down’ introduced the new direction the band were taking and the follow up ‘Around Town’ with a gospel-esque tone confirmed their maturity. ‘Forgive and Forgets’ continues their transition into something a little more serious than the cheeky pop we know them for and is a reminder of just how far these guys have come since their debut album Inside In/Inside Out.
The Kooks new single ‘Forgive and Forget’ is out September 7th and the genre defying album ‘Listen’ is out September 8th on Virgin/EMI
