Listen: The Kooks Premiere “Forgive & Forget”

The Kooks Switch Up Their Sound For Their Forthcoming Record

The Kooks have made significant shift from the indie brit-pop band we were introduced to years ago. Why the sudden shift to a more electronic influenced direction? Frontman Luke Pritchet says:

“We were bored of ourselves. People are a bit bored of guitar bands, but at the end of the day, it’s only the feeling behind it, and music needs that to work. Any genre works, as long as there is feeling behind it. I am inspired by the songs, and that’s why it feels good.”

Their new LP is produced by both Pritchet and hip hop producer Inflo and it will be released on September 1st. In anticipation of its release they’ve shared the new disco beat number “Forgive and Forget”, take a listen below:
