Song of the Day: Kodaline – High Hopes


One of today’s emerging band, Kodaline is serenading my soul with their music. A friend of mine who also dig indie music introduced me first to the band with their single, Talk and fell in love with it immediately. From then on, I couldn’t stop listening to their music. Hailing from the Irish land, Kodaline is like the new Coldplay of this generation. They create songs that makes you wanna cry yet comforts you at the same time. I mean, just look at these phrases in their song High Hopes:

“And in my dreams, I meet the ghosts of all the people who have come and gone
Memories, they seem to show up so quick but they leave you far too soon”

“But I’ve got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started, when you let it go, go out and start again ,when it all comes to an end. But the world keeps spinning around”

High Hopes, is In A Perfect World’s fourth track and is just one of their songs that inexplicably hit you hard for some reason whenever you listen to it. According to the band’s vocalist, Stephen Garrigan, High Hopes was very personal to him because he wrote the song at a very rough time of his life but was trying to stay positive in the midst of.

Without any further ado, here’s Kodaline with High Hopes and oh, did i mention that aside from their songs, they have the best music videos too?
