The Kooks – Around Town (NSFW)
There’s a bit of a seventies vibe to the new single from The Kooks, “Around Town.” There’s a shake and shimmy of the city streets, soulful backup vocals, and hints of leather and sweat. It’s only appropriate that the video (or, more accurately, the short film) that accompanies it calls to the same gritty decade. Heist films and high action were all the rage, and director Ryan Hope gives us a modernized and more emotional version here. Take seven minutes and follow our heroine down the R-rated rabbit hole.
