The Kooks

To take a 15-year old girl’s take on this, I could sit and listen to Luke Pritchard’s voice for hours and hours. He’s so dreamy. It’s fair to say that the lead singer’s vocals and “Naive”, off their previous album Inside In/Outside In, immediately won me over. Well, The Kooks are back with their 2nd album and I’m so pumped about it. The sophomore effort, Konk (Buy), is stuffed full of unstoppable hooks, but shows a wider array of experimentation than the previous album. The Kooks are on tour this summer with The Morning Benders of Berkeley, CA, which adds up to a greasy van-load of great indie tunes and musicians. Of course, they’re only stopping in Philly, not DC, but I’ll get over it.
