The Kooks

Following the band’s ferocious shows at SXSW, The Kooks have unveiled their music video for their new single “Down,” directed by Davis Silis. “Down” was premiered two weeks ago as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record, and it’s a mission statement from a band that have rediscovered what they loved about making music in the first place. The video’s rapid-fire editing and swirl of bright, vibrant colors lend themselves well to the track, highlighting the Kooks’ newfound sense of swagger. Watch the video by clicking the link below.

The Kooks – “Down” Music Video


Written by Luke Pritchard and young hip-hop pioneer Inflo, “Down” was recorded in London and LA, and will be released digitally on April 1, with a Remix EP to be released on April 22. The track has already received acclaim, with NME calling it “R&B inspired” and The Music Ninja noting that “”Down” sounds unlike anything The Kooks have ever released. With its funky beats and infectious vocals, the new single from The Kooks is a borderline R&B, certainly groovy track.” Indie Shuffle praised the song as “wonderfully funky and upbeat…a sound slightly reminiscent of music created by The Rapture.”


The Kooks are: Luke Pritchard – vocals and guitar, guitarist Hugh Harris, bassist Pete Denton and drummer Alexis Nunez.
