The Kooks
Sat 24 May 2014 In New Music We Trust Stage
Time to Get Down

After setting the charts alight with indie pop singles Naive and She Moves In Her Own Way, The Kooks have reinvented themselves and returned with new single Down, given its first play on Zane Lowe who promptly declared it his Hottest Record in the World.

The Brighton four piece have been through several line up changes and have spent time away working with Foster The People and causing controversy with fellow acts One Direction. Sparks are bound to fly when they return to the Big Weekend stage having last headlined in Maidstone 6 years ago.

Describing their new sound as 'electric church music', it's a move away from the jangly guitars found on debut Inside In/Inside Out, with a funk-inspired beat and soulful wailing, Gospel choirs feature on album track Around Town, so Glasgow should expect to be in fine voice as this Brighton quartet open Saturday's INMWT stage.
