Kodaline are from Dublin and they’re really, really good. The production on the EP is top class, they’re polished without sounding smoothed out or false, they can play and most importantly, they write interesting and original songs. Oh, and the accompanying videos would put most major label, big budget efforts, to shame.
The first track I heard from them before the EP release was Lose Your Mind. It sounds sort of like Spiritualized, but with Muse’s Matt Bellamy’s little brother on vocals. On first listen, it sounded warm and familiar but still something fresh and different. It definitely grows on you the more you listen.
