#122: Kodaline - In A Perfect World

When a band such as Dublin's Kodaline comes along, I view them with a mixture of both awe and sympathy; the former because of the sheer amount of talent and chemistry upheld by the band members, and the latter because too many times the hype bubble bursts and sends those it once enveloped crashing back to reality, rapidly. Thankfully, for singer Steve Garrigan et al, they've been playing as a single entity for six years now (though only under the Kodaline moniker for two) and that experience helps massively when recording of début album...perhaps someone should have told Palma Violets that.
