Album: Junk Of The Heart (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • 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."
