The Kooks: By Such a Smiling Sweetheart

The Kooks are a British Indie Pop band, drawing influence from bands like The Police, The Rolling Stones, and The Beatles.   Just three months after the band's formation they distributed a demo tape in hopes of getting some gigs.  Instead, the band received offers from record labels, and soon were signed to Virgin Records.  In 2006 The Kooks released their debut album Inside In/ Inside Out, which received high praise, especially in the UK and throughout Europe.

Earlier this year the band announced that it had finished recording their latest album.  Junk of the Heart is currently slated for a September 12th release date.  Here's The Kooks performing "Naive" off of 2006's Inside In/ Inside Out.

The Kooks begin their European Tour in Austria on August 18th.  You can find more about The Kooks on their website, including information on their upcoming release.
