Dublin quartet Kodaline have created quite a stir with their debut self-titled EP. From the series of heart-on-sleeve, beautifully executed videos and tear-jerker lead track ‘All I Want’ receiving an overwhelming response after being played by Zane Lowe and Fearne Cotton on Radio 1, amassing over 300,000 views on YouTube and spawning endless reposting by fans, Kodaline are going form strength to strength and continuing to win over fans with their honest and engaging songs.

Growing up only two minutes apart in the small town of Swords on the outskirts of the Dublin airport, Steve and Mark discovered music simultaneously and taught each other the craft of songwriting. It seems fitting for a band that have known each other since the tender age of eight that they should approach their music as a joint therapeutic outlet – it is a bond that lends their musical camaraderie the kind of deep understanding and natural kinship great groups often have at their core.

The band are now gearing up for their first UK dates in November, the first opportunity to communicate their widescreen, emotive pop songs to their eager fans directly.

Kodaline play the following UK dates:
