Listen To The Kooks' New Album Sampler

Whatever it is, something special has apparently gotten into the The Kooks’ morning coffee this last year or so. Known for their brazen, off-the-cuff pop hooks buoyed by Luke Pritchard’s funky vocal inflections, a first listen to new material off the British quartet’s upcoming album Listen reveals the band has spread its arms open wide open to all forms of inspiration, with chaotic, Latin-inspired arrangements and voracious, Eastern European gypsy troupe-type instrumentation popping in and out without much explanation. The band revealed an album sampler so you can take a listen this morning to hear for yourself.
