The Kooks Junk Of The Heart on LP
Junk of the Heart is the eagerly anticipated new album from The Kooks to be released via Astralwerks Records. Written by The Kooks, produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Air, Belle & Sebastian) and recorded in The Sound Factory (Los Angeles) and Sarm Studios (London), the band’s third album sees them consolidating their position as a bona fide album band with trademark breeziness and catchy hooks.
Kicking off with a dramatic breakbeat, the opening track builds across acoustic guitar and warm washes of synth before collapsing into a chorus you’ll be singing for days. It shows, that despite the change in their influences, the band still has a firm grasp on how to write killer hooks and pop songs without compare.
“It’s upbeat; an album to play in the sun” explains frontman Luke Pritchard of the forthcoming 12 song collection, “What we really wanted to do was build a proper, full album. Something you can listen to from front to back. We’re an album band and this is a journey you come on with us.”
