kooksEnglish indie rock giants The Kooks are now five albums into their career.

It’s apparent from the explosive track Kids just how much they’ve evolved, their sound all the more powerful and anthemic. It’s easy to forget the band first emerged 14 years ago given how fresh they sound, with Luke Pritchard’s voice reporting as youthful as ever. They’ve also retained their ear for a catchy hook, as evidenced on tracks All The Time, Pamela and No Pressure.

While part of their appeal lies in the nostalgia conjured when you listen, on Let’s Go Sunshine The Kooks have proven that they’re still a vital act.

Let’s Go Sunshine is out August 31 via Lonely Cat/AWAL.
