The Kooks - Oasis
I fucking love The Kooks, but that hasn't always been the case. I foolishly thought they were just another generic guitar band when they first appeared. But they've delivered a steady stream of beautifully crafted and infectious pop songs over the last twenty years. Ensuring that my ears are pointed towards them wherever they release new material. 'Oasis', taken from their current album, proves that a simple approach is usually best. Clocking in at less than two minutes, it's built around a straightforward guitar riff, great vocals, and eighties-tinged drums and bass, designed to make your arse wiggle. Top stuff.
