Kodaline have spent two years doing nothing but writing, with just a belief in their talent keeping them afloat.

Teaching each other the principles of songcraft, the music they came up with – some of which can be found on their self titled EP – isn’t wan or introspective or self-serving. Instead, it’s bold, epic and stirring.

The two years of hard graft finally came to fruition in June of this year with one of the most eagerly awaited debut albums for some time. In A Perfect World was certainly worth the wait as it hit the number one spot on the week of release. Kodaline are now hoping their music will provide therapy for others too. "Music should have a purpose, you know," says Steve, "Our purpose is honesty". www.kodaline.com
