Since then, they have gone a long way, became the favorite of music critics and effectively performed at the warming up for “The Thrills” and “The Subways”.
About The Kooks
Coming to the big stage with a track “Eddie's Gun”, The Kooks began to gain popularity with new singles – “Sofa Song” and “You Do not Love Me”. The debut album “Inside In / Inside Out” only increased the popularity of this team, having appeared to be overflown with the positive energy. It was followed by the song “See The World”, full of screaming guitars and highlighting with their energy, then goes the song “Sofa Song”. This is a wonderful single, which has a lot of humor; however, this may be said about other tracks called “Jackie Big Tits” and “The Kooks Naïve”.
The single “Eddie's Gun” is the intricate song in a rock style, but at the same time, the latest release of “You Do not Love Me” song turned out stunning, more inclined to punk. Positive “Bright Kooks Ooh La” is another track with an amazing refrain.
The unwary acoustic composition “She Moves In Her Own Way” was no less hit than the best tracks of the groups “The Zutons” and “The Coral”. Emitting confidence and the desire to show that the group is not afraid to experiment with their music, the elements of ska, particularly in the songs “Matchbox” and Time Awaits”, are noticed.
In total, “The Kooks” recorded 4 albums and the latest one “Listen” was written down in 2014.
