Kodaline In A Perfect World on LP + Download
Debuting at #1 in Ireland, #3 in the U.K. and in the Top 10 in the Netherlands in the summer of 2013, In A Perfect World is the full-length coming out party for the Irish alternative-rock quartet Kodaline which follows-up a series of acclaimed EPs including The Kodaline EP (2012), The High Hopes EP (2013), Love Like This EP (2013) and Brand New Day EP (2013). The 11-song set will see its long-awaited US release on RCA Records.
Critics in the UK are raving about Kodaline. The Daily Telegraph claims, “They have a touch of every epic multi-million-selling outfit around” and have, “sleek, widescreen rock songs to make them big stars in 2013," while The Guardian states, “Where they’ll be by summer 2014: near the top of the bill at a festival near you, having the words deafeningly sung back at them” the Daily Star raves, “Kodaline are a band that justify the hype.”
Hailing from Dublin, Kodaline are childhood friends Steve Garrigan (lead vocals) Mark Prendergast (guitarist), Jason Boland (bassist) and Vinny May (drummer). Steve and Mark met at the age of 7 in the school choir and forged a close musical bond learning to play guitar together, growing up just minutes apart. They encountered Vinny playing with another band in their early teens and quickly recognized his talents. Jason completed the line-up in 2011, and Kodaline was born.
The band was recently nominated for MTV UK’s “Brand New: for 2013,” as well as BBC’s “Sound of 2013.” Their debut single in the UK, “High Hopes” was the highest new entry on the UK singles chart upon release. In Ireland, both “All I Want” and “High Hopes” are certified gold and “High Hopes” was #1 on both the singles and airplay charts.
