Kodaline Camden Roundhouse, London February 17 2015 (Live Review)

Wednesday, 04 March 2015 Written by Katie Territt

By now, you know the name Kodaline. Back in 2013, the Irish band released their debut album, 'In a Perfect World', a hit both at home and in the UK. And let’s be honest, we all know the title track thanks to Gogglebox.

Early February saw the release of their second album, 'Coming Up for Air', and a stop at the Roundhouse in Camden. First up, London-based alt-rock quintet The Mispers pitched up with some damn catchy tunes. Shoulder, their new single, impressed an already large crowd, while Jack Balfour Scott and Joey Arnold Zapata’s swagger made them a perfect opening act.

Port Isla, fresh from supporting James Bay, rolled out harmonies that echoed those of the headliners, with charismatic frontman William Bloomfield going over particularly well.

Kodaline hit the stage to an electric atmosphere. The set skipped between their debut and new material, with the biggest reactions still saved for the singles to emerge from ‘In a Perfect World’: Brand New Day, High Hopes and a breathtaking All I Want.

The list of artists who can be said to be better live than recorded is small, but Kodaline absolutely have a place on that list, from Steve Garrigan’s extensive array of instruments to the way they capture the emotions of the crowd.

'Coming Up for Air' didn’t quite hit the spot like their debut did, but a lot of those songs certainly have to be heard live to be appreciated. It’s on stage that Kodaline shine and, with their rapidly increasing popularity, surely those arenas are calling?
