Kodaline (formed 2005) are an alternative rock band from Dublin consisting of vocalist Stephen Garrigan, guitarist Mark Prendergast, drummer Vinny May and bassist Jason Boland.
Formation: Kodaline started out named 21 Demands. They topped the Irish Singles Chart in 2007 with their debut single 'Give Me A Minute' making history by it becoming the first independently-released track to do so. In 2011, they changed the band name to Kodaline.
Career: Kodaline released their debut EP 'The Kodaline EP' in 2012 with one of the songs, 'All I Want', being well-received reaching the UK chart and being lauded Record of the Week on BBC Radio 1. The song also made an appearance on an episode of 'Grey's Anatomy'. They were nominated for the BBC's Sound of 2013 poll in 2012 as well as MTV's Brand New For 2013. Their 2013 single 'High Hopes', from their second EP of the same name, became their second track to top the Irish Singles Chart. They announced the release of their debut album 'In a Perfect World' in 2012.
The infamous Superbad actor plays the lead role in the band's latest release
Irish rock band Kodaline is starting to assert its dominance in the international music world with the recruitment of Superbad’s very own McLovin in the video for the latest single, Ready.

Kasabian and Calvin Harris are heading to V Festival 2015
Calvin Harris and Kasabian have been announced as headliners for this year's V Festival. The Scottish DJ and Leicester rockers were head up the bill at Hylands Park and Weston Park and will be joined by Sam Smith, James Bay, Ellie Goulding, The Script, George Ezra, Stereophonics, Olly Murs, Ella Henderson, Kodaline and Cvhrches.
Kasabian will headline this year's V Festival
Simon Moran, V Festival director, said: "We wanted to champion British talent at this year's festival and with the likes of Calvin and Kasabian leading the way we don't think it'll disappoint.

Kodaline are an Irish quartet who released their debut album 'In A Perfect World' in 2013, topping the charts for nine weeks in their homeland and selling a very respectable 350,000 units. This follow-up saw them collaborate with Jacknife Lee, a cohort of Snow Patrol and Taylor Swift, and sees them play headline UK shows in the coming month before touring North America.
For a quick guide to what 'Coming Up For Air' is all about, a listen of the bookend tracks provides an accurate summary. 'Honest' is a pop-rock number that sits comfortably on daytime radio, with no danger or, indeed, intent to offend, and features a chorus targeting arenas. The closing 'Love Will Set You Free' is a piano-based ballad that sees Steve Garrigan resembling Maroon 5's Adam Levine. It builds to what is intended to be a stirring finale, though it is debatable as to whether this is really achieved given the suspect emotion of the performance. Between these tracks, 'Autopilot' feels expansive and liberated, but the Gaelic flavour of 'Unclear' plods along aimlessly and should have been omitted. The fluctuation in quality continues throughout the album - 'Ready' is a fun and likeable romp, but gets followed by the overblown 'Better', which is a lesson in how to take the power-ballad beyond enjoyable limits. There is no doubt that they remain at all times open to mass-market appeal, but the results here are very much hit-and-miss. At their best, they can match countrymen The Script, but they need to find consistency.

Festival fun in London! Highlights include Jabberwocky, Camden Crawl and Wireless...
If you want a unique festival experience this year, London could be the place for you. Featuring a diverse range of events from the independent ethics of Jabberwocky to the mainstream attitude of Wireless, 2014 is not all about the States.
The UK is home to some incredible, highly respected music festivals such as Isle of Wight Festival, Leeds and Reading Festival and, of course, Glastonbury - but just what do we have in store from the nation's capital? London is unquestionably the UK's most vibrant city and, when it comes to music, there's really no denying that. The rest of the world may have SXSW, Coachella, Ultra and Exit (to name but a very small few), but London has a plethora of unique local events with line-ups and atmospheres that really prove their worth - and we're here to share them with you.
Jabberwocky (August 15th-16th)
All Tomorrow's Parties present this brand new festival for 2014, co-hosted by Pitchfork and Primavera Sound and set to take place at The Excel Centre this August. For its inaugural event, Jabberwocky will see headline acts from Neutral Milk Hotel, James Blake, Darkside and Caribou, not to mention support from Kurt Vile & The Violators, Hookworms and Electric Wizard. Like many of the best festivals, it's not all about the music as Jabberwocky will be hosting some film events and, as the name suggests, there'll be plenty of art to enjoy too. Tickets are priced at £38.50 per day.
