The Kooks proved that after ten years they’ve still got it

Having formed in 2004 in Brighton, The Kooks are an English indie rock band that ushered in the post punk revival of the new millennium, all the while being influenced by the sounds of the 1960s.

With hits such as ‘She Moves in Her Own Way’, ‘You Don’t Love Me’, ‘Ooh La’ and ‘Naïve’, The Kooks are mainstays on the UK indie-pop scene. With new fans discovering their catalogue of music every day, they’ve amassed over one billion streams over the years.

  • Thursday 6 October 2022 – Festival Hall, Melbourne

They’re no stranger to the Australian gigging scene either – with appearances at Beyond the Valley, Splendour in the Grass and Lost Paradise as well as numerous sold-out headline tours across the country over their career.

The band have also just released a new single, indie-pop track ‘Cold Heart’, taken from their upcoming sixth studio album. Their new album 10 Tracks To Echo In The Dark is due out on 22 July.
