The Kooks use Harty church in Sheppey for new music video

By John Nurden

Sheppey has been featured in yet another music video.

Indie band The Kooks have used the Island to promote their single No Pressure from the album Let’s Go Sunshine.

The video shows a couple of newlyweds from the 1960s emerging from Harty church, chatting on a bench at Barton’s Point Coastal Park, Sheerness, and having an argument when their Ford Capri breaks down.

The Kooks were formed in Brighton in 2004 and currently comprise frontman Luke Pritchard, Hugh Harris on lead guitar and synthesizer and Alexis Nunez on drums. Bass player Pete Denton quit the band, which is influenced by The Police, The Strokes and The Rolling Stones, in January.

Last summer when the video was shot, Luke, 33, announced he had become engaged to budding singer Ellie Rose.

He said the new album included “love letters” to his new partner.
