Around Town is the second single to be released by The Kooks and is taken from the bands’ forthcoming album, Listen, which is expected in September 2014 through Virgin Records.
Following on from their first single, Down, this track is also co-produced by lead singer Luke Pritchard and producer Inflo.
Bursting with energy, Around Town opens with a majestic chorus of gospel singers over a funky bass line and tambourine percussion. The track continues their new-found sound and direction – less indie and more playful, refined pop.
The track (and album) was recorded by Miloco engineer Joseph Rodgers and part recorded at Miloco’s The Pool, The Bridge and Sofa Sound. The band also spent a lot of time working in the SSL mix room, The Engine Room.
Have a listen to the track below, which is released on 15th June 2014:
