Irish outfit Kodaline seduced us Aussies with their breakout hit ‘High Hopes’ about 15 months ago. But despite the track’s undeniable charms, a similarly sizeable follow-up was never forthcoming and we’ve seemingly banished them to one hit wonder territory.
Naturally, they’ve come out all guns blazing with lead single from their forthcoming sophomore album ‘Coming Up For Air’, due next month.
To be ‘honest’, the track feels and sounds a lot like Coldplay’s previous material which, depending on how you feel about the British supergroup, could be no bad thing. And besides, if the sound’s worked for them, it could work for Kodaline too, right? Potentially.
