Kodaline – 'In a Perfect World'
‘In a Perfect World’ opens with two melodic summer anthems: the soaring, Kings of Leon-alike ‘After The Fall’, and the slower, yet equally euphoric ‘All Comes Down To’. Kodaline then go on to showcase their versatility with two unforgettable tearjerkers, ‘All I Want’ (the video for which has over three million views online), and ‘High Hopes’. Feel-good, folksy tunes like, ‘Way Back When’ and ‘Love Like This’ make this a mixed bag of emotional highs and lows. Kodaline’s vision is, perhaps, not everyone’s idea of a perfect world – one in which people’s feelings are constantly spilling out, carried on waves of tears – but for many wistful souls, this album will feel like finding Utopia.
