Finding peace in the kitchen

Pals, I've been stuck in a rut. With no routine and a fairly stressful deadline not that far away, I've found my mental health receding.

Interview / Luke Pritchard

The National Student gave me the chance to have a chat with The Kooks’ outspoken frontman, Luke Pritchard, about their brand new album, Let’s Go Sunshine. The Kooks’ 2014 album Listen was a drastic change in style for the UK indie favourites, met with mixed reaction from fans and critics alike.
