The Kooks are arguably the best export out of England since Bloc Party. Their music is tantalizing, rapturous, and intelligent. Formed in 2004 in Brighton, the band has released five LPs and toured relentlessly around the world. Drawing their sound from the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Chris de Burgh and more, the band easily appeals to anyone with two functioning eardrums. Luke Pritchard had this to say about their writing:
“It’s just like an idea, like a chorus, and then we just jam on it – it happens in loads of different ways. The best songs I find always come from the subconscious, like when you don’t think. Not to be pretentious about it, but usually songs just blurt out rather than thinking about it. I never write lyrics and then do a song, I find that really hard – that’s like a real skill.”
On Tuesday, February 12th, The Kooks will bring their musical talents to the Palladium in Los Angeles. Expect to hear the top power tracks such as “She Moves In Her Own Way” and “Seaside” from the band’s album ‘Inside In/Inside Out’. Furthermore, the track “Naive” should make its way into the setlist. The track has over 228 million plays on Spotify. Joining The Kooks will be Barns Courtney & Future Feats.
The concert takes place at the Hollywood Palladium on Tuesday, February 12th and is presented by Live Nation. 7 PM. Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased here! Or, try your luck by entering our contest below:
