UNVEIL HEARTWARMING VIDEO FOR ‘NO PRESSURE’
Today, The Kooks have revealed a heart-warming new video for their single ‘No Pressure’. Directed by Favourite Colour: Black (Birdy, Alice, National Geographic), this is the second video from their forthcoming fifth studio album Let’s Go Sunshine, which is due out on 31st August via Lonely Cat/AWAL Recordings.
The video follows a young couple, pregnant with their first child, whose love for each other shines through, despite uncertain times ahead. Escaping their suffocating suburban existence and disapproving families, the couple steal a car and go on a Bonnie & Clyde style road trip, staging their own mock wedding day along the way, with a thrift shop dress, wedding breakfast made up of burgers and fries, and cans hanging from the back of their car.
The story juxtaposes youthful spontaneity with the responsibilities of adulthood, cutting from open countryside full of natural light and possibility to a dingy and stereotypically British pub setting. The narrative ends with the happy couple having their first dance in the pub to The Kooks, ultimately showing that life goes on and its trials and tribulations are all part of an exciting journey. It’s the perfect visual accompaniment to the feel-good ‘No Pressure’, which is just the slice of timelessly melodic guitar pop that made the nation fall in love with The Kooks back in 2006.
The four piece have enjoyed a steady ascent since their debut album Inside in/Inside Out, which was recently certified quadruple platinum. A new wave of young fans has seen them amass over one billion streams and head out on a number of world tours, selling out their US tour and playing an iconic performance at London’s Wembley Arena. This summer has already seen them support legends The Rolling Stones on two stadium dates and they’re due to play the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festival before embarking on an intimate UK tour in September to celebrate the release of Let’s Go Sunshine. 2018 sees The Kooks redefined, varied and ready to go again at their most confident.
