Irish outfit Kodaline seduced us with their breakout smash ‘High Hopes’ last year. Though it didn’t quite match the No.1 success it achieved in the band’s homeland, it did the business in our top 30 and gave us a perfect introduction to the band’s debut long player ‘In A Perfect World’, which also hit the top 30.
Now the band’s back and ready for more, with the upcoming release of their sophomore album ‘Coming Up For Air’.
Preceded by the recent release of their new track ‘Honest’, the deluxe edition of the new LP tops out at a healthy 15 tracks, with an acoustic edition of the lead single playing the role of bonus song (track 16). And the band reveals that it came about rather quickly.
“If you’d told us at the start of the summer that we’d be finished our album by autumn we wouldn’t have believed you,” vocalist Steve Garrigan said in a statement. “It happened so quickly. A lot of the songs were done live in the studio, on the spot.”
‘Coming Up For Air’ will be released in Australia on Friday February 06.
