New Kooks – “Tick Of Time”

Brighton’s the Kooks are just about set for the Stateside release of the follow up to the Pete Townshend beloved-Inside In/Inside Out LP. They’ve called it Konk. The new single “Tick Of Time” has Pritchard & Co. unplug and set their tune to a slow going reggae groove. Luke’s a broken hearted sadsack in this one, but the mood is more summer day happy hour.

The Kooks – “Tick Of Time” (MP3)

Konk is out in the UK 4/14 on Virgin, and 4/15 in the US via Astralwerks. More Kookyness: You may remember we posted the “Always Where I Need To Be” video; now you can have it live:
