The Kooks swagger and charm their way through Reading 2018

Party like it's 2006.

Having survived the tail off of noughties indie, The Kooks have earned their place high up on the Reading billing - and they know it. With swagger and cheeky charm, Luke Kook and co. appease the banger-yearning masses, but not before showing them what else they have to offer. It’s a while before any Kook-bangers make an appearance, but once they do hit through the staying power of their early big hitters is obvious. The Kooks of 2018 may not be what everyone wants, but it does keep us singing along to ‘Naive’ like it’s 2006.
