Kodaline offer positive vibes to help keep our ‘Head Held High’


We’re suckers for many things here at the V, but few things get us worked up more than some well placed “la’s” in a pitch-perfect pop song. Irish band Kodaline are the la-la-la-latest to jump into this fray, offering up infectious new single “Head Held High” to put some positive mandolin-pop shine on our late-summer Tuesday. The bubbly single will be featured on Kodaline’s forthcoming album Politics Of Living, which hits September 28 on Sony Music and serves as the awaited follow-up to 2015 record Coming Up For Air. The feel-good video, directed by James Fitzgerald, shows a worn-out school cafeteria worker auditioning for a class musical and realizing her dream of performing. We all need a little bit of this right now, and the feeling should extend through to this winter — Kodaline play The Paradise Rock Club on December 6.
