This bright, ska-tinged tune is the first single from The Kooks' third album Junk Of The Heart. It was released on September 4, 2011.
Singer Luke Pritchard told Q magazine the band took a more experimental approach for the album. "We wanted to make something more modern than what we've done in the past," he said. "I started writing without a guitar - just putting it down and getting a beat together. We were experimenting with things we'd never done before."
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
