The 2005 Britpop revival continues. Already this year we've had Kaiser Chiefs whip us into a frenzy with their wonderfully simplistic song structures, and now we have a four piece from Brighton called The Kooks who are hoping to capitalise on our sudden nostalgia for all things mid '90s.
Well their timing certainly couldn't be better. July, the height of the British summer - baking sun, Pimms and lemonade, overcrowded beer gardens, festivals left right and centre. The mood is upbeat and people feel good about themselves, which is why a single like Eddie's Gun sounds fantastic when you hear it on the radio.
Think fuzzed up guitars, great melodies, the energy and youthful abandon of Caught By The Fuzz era Supergrass along with some slick production and you're there - a sing along anthem in the making. The only problem is that it comes to an abrupt halt at just under two minutes, just as it gathers some real momentum, leaving us desperate for more. That's probably the point though.
