Kodaline are an Indie folk and rock band orginally from Swords, Dublin, where members Steve Garrigan, Mark Prendergast and Vinny May grew up. The group is completed by bass player Jason Boland, who hails from County Kildare.
Originally known as 21 Demands, the band changed their name to Kodaline before the release of their debut album In A Perfect World in 2013. The record has sold over 350,000 copies worldwide and includes hits such as All I Want, High Hopes and Love Like This. Titluar track, Perfect World, is also currently used as the theme song for hit Channel 4 TV series Gogglebox.
In 2019, Kodaline played some of the biggest shows of their career. At home in Dublin they sold-out two huge outdoor shows at St. Anne’s Park, while a ten-date UK tour culminated with a packed show at London’s historic Roundhouse. Further afield, they hit festivals including Lollapalooza, Benicàssim and Open’er before becoming the first Irish band to headline the massive NH7 Weekender in Pune, India. Their extensive touring throughout Asia also included a headline set at Monsoon Music Festival in Vietnam plus dates in China, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan and Singapore.
That reach suggests that Kodaline are perfectly placed to continue to be discovered by new fans all over the globe with their fourth album. After more than a billion streams at Spotify and almost 600 million views at YouTube, there’s a lot more to come in the Kodaline story.
