Kodaline Share Brand New Single ‘Sometimes’
Kodaline are making a striking return as they prepare to release their eagerly anticipated fourth album later this year. Their recent single ‘Wherever You Are’ has quickly exceeded 6 million streams, while the emotional accompanying video has added another 2.9 million views.
The band subsequently announced an intimate summer residency at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, which was quickly extended due to phenomenal demand. They’ve since become the first band in history to sell out a run of seven shows at the venue.
Kodaline now build upon that initial launch by sharing their new single ‘Sometimes’. The song starts as a sun-kissed acoustic folk groove before launching into the kind of anthemic, larger-than-life pop hook that the band have become renowned for. It also captures Kodaline’s rare gift for exploring a challenging topic within a song that feels both joyous and life-affirming. As the song admits, “We all get lost sometimes.”
“‘Sometimes’ is a song I wrote while on tour in Asia last year,” says frontman Steve Garrigan. “I had a really bad day dealing with my own anxiety issues and I let it get the better of me. I started writing the song in my hotel room to help me calm down, music has always helped me in that way. For me, it’s a song about accepting the bad days and trying to stay positive.”
