Pritchard also revealed that the’yve have taken a while to form the record’s sound, admitting: “It’s changed a few times. We’ve been in the studio many different times and gone backwards and forwards.
“It’s quite different but it’s still going to be the same kind of roots… we’ve been getting involved with using different instrumentation and things like that but it’s still going to be Kooks.”
