The Kooks return with explosive new single “Down”. Written by Luke Pritchard & young hip hop pioneer Inflo, the future hit is like nothing the Kooks have ever done before, with it’s looped hooks + crazy percussion. It’s got a contagious swagger that bodes well for the band’s forthcoming album.
“With this record we didn’t do any rehearsing beforehand,” Luke Pritchard says. “I’d write a song with Inflo or on my own, put it up and we’d all play over it. There was a real freedom to the process.”
Produced by Inflo & co-produced by Luke, “Down” was recorded in London + LA, & will be released digitally + on a 7” on April 20th.

London 4-piece Flyte, announce the release of their debut single “We Are The Rain” via paradYse records.
Lead singer Will Taylor describes the song as being “about monotonous relationships that continue for no reason other than comfort” with the song’s wry lyrics taking in Desert Island Discs and April showers, demonstrating a classically understated British eccentricity reminiscent of The Kinks or The Smiths.
Their DIY debut Live EP (released in September 2013) was recorded in just a day & quickly found mainstream radio supporters in the shape of Radio 1’s Zane Lowe + Fearne Cotton. Produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat (Circa Waves, Chloe Howl, The Vaccines, Lana Del Rey), “We Are The Rain” is Flyte’s 1st single proper, & sees the band continuing to perfect their sound and songwriting craft.
