Audio Interview: Steve Garrigan of Kodaline at the Great Escape 2013

Steve Garrigan Kodaline interviewIf it’s something we learned in the last 12 months, it is always trust Gary Barlow. Last summer, he Tweeted about loving a new band from Dublin called Kodaline. At the time, I wasn’t sure how to pronounce the band name (yes, how embarrassing; I know now, it’s Koda-LINE [rhymes with SiGN]) and we really didn’t know much about the band at all.

Fast forward many months later, and after a BBC Sound of 2013 nod, their first appearance at SXSW and loads of other firsts, I caught up with singer/songwriter Steve Garrigan in Brighton for their debut appearance at the Great Escape 2013. In this interview, I learn that the band used to live in the seaside town (who knew?), they thoroughly enjoyed their time in America supporting the Airborne Toxic Event (tears were shed!) and much more. We were sat outside the Dome in brilliant sunshine and you couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop, really.

I thank Steve very much for this interview, as before we started recording, I learned that the poor guy had just flown in from the TATE tour in Toronto and of course was still on American time and very jetlagged. The fact that they went on to perform that night (at Brighton Dome no less), then do two more shows the following day, just blows my mind. Thanks for being a trooper, Steve!
