Dublin, Ireland-based modern rock quartet Kodaline specialize in soaring, radio-ready guitar rock that's drawn comparisons to Coldplay, Keane, U2, and Oasis. The Politics of Living is their third album. Politics of Living¬í sees Kodaline team up with some of the hottest production and writing talent imaginable including hitmaker supreme Steve Mac (¬ëShape Of You¬í by Ed Sheeran), pop guru Johnny Coffer (Rag¬íN¬íBone Man, Beyonce), Jonas Jeberg (Dizzee Rascal, Kylie Minogue), Stephen Harris (Miles Kane, Kaiser Chiefs) as well as long-time collaborator Johnny McDaid (¬ëWhat About Us¬í by Pink). Kodaline appear to be most comfortable when they return to their roots, that is, when the production is relaxed, the tempo is slower and the emotions run high. The gorgeously simple melody that unfolds from the mostly a capella I Wouldn‚Äôt Be sounds like it came straight from the lips of an Irish mother singing to her child.
