Music Monday: Songs you might want to hear – Kodaline


There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it.

Maybe you will find a new favorite.


Last week, I wrote about songs that bring back memories of camping with friends (Milo Greene). Here is another. This was the first song from Kodaline that I heard, and I was instantly hooked. The song starts in a soft, dream-like haze and builds to an angst driven climax before ending back where we started with no resolution.

Kodaline are an Irish rock band. Originally known as 21 Demands, the band adopted their current name in 2012 to coincide with the changing of their music. The group comprises Steve Garrigan, Mark Prendergast, Vincent May and Jason Boland



I hope you enjoyed my selection today.

  1. I quite like Kodaline, though they can be a bit gloomy! They kind of came at us out of nowhere, and followed on the line started by Coldplay and Snow Patrol. My favourite track on this album is High Hopes – lovely video, too.
