The Kooks

One of the youngest and most talented bands I've heard in a long time. A lot of potential.

Stand Out Songs:

See the World
Sofa Song
Ooh La
Naive (Awesome Tune)
I Want You

Please Appreciate

I've been hearing "She Moves In Her Own Way" an AWFUL lot lately, so I'm a bit burned out on the song at the moment, but it is good.

Incidentally, they were on a "Live From Abbey Road" episode last night. Didn't sound too bad.

I can't get over how young they are and so good at the craft of song writting. Remind me of the Arctic Monkeys a little.

They haven't had TONS of airplay here. I've heard a couple of their songs here and there on TV and stuff, but I haven't seen a whole lot of media attention about them.

Yes. At least I do. But they haven't been mass-promoted yet. But I have heard two of their songs on the radio.

Solid band. Kind of remind me of something between Supergrass and Oasis.

"She Moves In Her Own Way" is catchy as a mofo.

Saw them here in Boulder at The Fox, this little place and just blew everyone away. I just love these guys.

They aren't that great Decent pop tunes, but I don't find them mind blowing...played everywhere in the UK as well....that said I do really like Naive at least.

Oooh... I like them too but I think there is much more potential there for The Kooks.
