The Kooks in Dubai

UK indie rockers ready for Chill Out Festival gig

The Kooks in Dubai

Who are The kooks?
Named after David Bowie’s 1971 tune ‘Kooks’, British indie upstarts The Kooks landed on the scene six years ago with chart-smashing, quadruple-indie platinum debut Inside In/Inside Out, which spawned six hit singles, including über-hummable ‘You Don’t Love Me’, ‘Naïve’ and ‘She Moves in Her Own Way’, which helped to define the jangly summer sound of 2006. Just teenagers at the time, they famously fell out with contemporaries Arctic Monkeys and Razorlight, then nearly split when their second LP, Konk, failed to reach the giddy heights of the first. Fighting back with last year’s Junk of the Heart, we’re looking forward to hearing the band mature into their mid-20s on stage at Chill Out on Saturday 21.
