Kodaline

Dublin, Ireland-based modern rock quartet Kodaline specializes in soaring, radio-ready guitar rock that's drawn comparisons to Coldplay, Keane, U2, and Oasis.

Formed in the working class town of Swords around the talents of Stephen Garrigan, Vinnie May, Jr, Jason Boland, and Mark Prendergast, the band released an eponymous EP in 2012, with plans to unleash a full-length outing the following year. At the end of 2012, the band was shortlisted for the BBC's Sound of 2013, but were beat to the top spot by Haim. Kodaline released their debut album, In a Perfect World, in June 2013, which was preceded by the singles High Hopes and Love Like This. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
