After the success of his previous single, 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.”

The Olympia Theatre shows represent Kodaline’s first in Dublin this year. In 2019 they sold-out two 15,000 capacity shows at St. Anne’s Park before playing to another 60,000 at Electric Picnic. The festival reached an emotional crescendo when Cranberries’ guitarist Noel Hogan joined Kodaline for ‘Zombie’, a whole-hearted tribute to the late Dolores O’Riordan. It also represented Kodaline going back to the beginning. Their first arena show came when the Cranberries invited them to open a gig in Paris back in 2012.

27th – Dublin, Olympia Theatre (SOLD OUT)
