The Kooks bold new longplayer Let's Go Sunshine distills their timeless sound into its purest form while pushing it forward into a more expansive and mature space. It's a moving, energizing and timelessly melodic record that's incisive in its portrait of modern British urban life. The heart and soul of the album lies in its hymns of lost innocence, fading relationships and the process of break-up and recovery. It's the sound of an ambitious, confident band stepping out and making a statement with their definitive album. Let's Go Sunshine sees the band cement their status as true bastions of British guitar pop and take their rightful place at the table next to the celebrated bands that influenced them in their infancy, over a decade ago.
Lead singer/guitarist Luke Pritchard notes, "This one was about defining who we are. We were asking the questions. It was a fractured start. We went into the studio in 2015, continuing down the path we set out on our last studio album Listen and discovered it wasn't what we wanted to make and wasn't really The Kooks. So we scrapped it and started again. I really went on a mission to write the best songs I'd ever written before bringing them to the band. I stewed over every word. It had to be our Rubber Soul, Lola, Definitely Maybe. Proper British lineage. I came from a dark place at the start, had a lotta heartbreak, and then falling in love in the middle of the album...the lyrics reflect that. From 'Fractured And Dazed' to ‘No Pressure', it's gotta be our most exciting album, and it should get you dancing."
