The Kooks have a new EP entitled Down which is out today via Astralwerks. The EP features four new songs by the band, including the already-released title-track, which was premiered last month as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record. The other three songs on the Down EP ("Hooray For Henry," "Hold On," and "Melody Maker") are exclusive to the EP, while title-track "Down" will be included on the band's forthcoming new album.

The title track and new single of the EP "Down," written by Luke Pritchard and young hip-hop pioneer Inflo, has already received acclaim ahead of the EP's release. NME called the track "R&B inspired" and The Music Ninja noted that ""Down" sounds unlike anything The Kooks have ever released. With its funky beats and infectious vocals, the new single from The Kooks is a borderline R&B, certainly groovy track." Indie Shuffle praised the song as "wonderfully funky and upbeat...a sound slightly reminiscent of music created by The Rapture."

The music video for "Down" was directed by Davis Silis. The video's rapid-fire editing and swirl of bright, vibrant colors lend themselves well to the track, highlighting the Kooks' newfound sense of swagger. Watch the video by clicking the link below.
