Having just smashed the biggest headline performance of their career, in front of a 40,000 strong crowd at London’s Community Festival in Finsbury Par, The Kooks have today unveiled an animated lyric video for their single ‘So Good Looking’, out now via Lonely Cat / AWAL Recordings. The track is the Brighton three piece’s second release of the summer, following hot on the heels of ‘Got Your Number’.
The video, directed by Peter Reeve and animated by James Wragg, also the team behind the visuals for last month’s ‘Got Your Number’, is inspired by the Popeye cartoons and sees frontman Luke wolf down beans, rather than spinach, in order to foil the thief who’s stolen his guitar. Its sense of nostalgia matches the track’s lyrics and timeless musicality, making it the perfect accompaniment to the summery festival anthem.
The Kooks have enjoyed a steady ascent since their debut album Inside in/Inside Out, which was last year certified quadruple platinum. A new wave of young fans has seen them amass over one billion streams and head out on a number of world tours, selling out their US tour and playing an iconic show at London’s Wembley Arena.
Last summer saw them support legends The Rolling Stones on two stadium dates and play the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festival, before embarking on an intimate UK tour in September to celebrate the release of Let’s Go Sunshine; their fourth top ten album. The band are back on the festival circuit this year following last week’s landmark performance.
