Kodaline are a special band & this is a very special debut record.
From the sing-a-long nature of ‘High Hopes’, to the Alternative-ballad ‘All I Want‘ … the album never retreads old roads. It’s production is incredibly modern and when working in tandem with this fine collection of songs; it’s a match match in heaven.
The vocals of lead singer, Steve Garrigan, are a constant positive anchor from the very first song until the last. Utilizing falsetto, fragility, epic soars and everything in between – his voice is the glue that holds all these musical bricks together. Just stunning.
If this is how they sound just out of the starting blocks.. we are incredibly keen to keep a close eye on their evolution. You should too.
