Kodaline are a Dublin-based alternative rock quartet who are about to burst into the charts making a big impact. They first attracted attention back in September with the release of their EP 'The Kodaline', whilst they are now beginning to enter peoples radars after the release of their massive single 'High Hopes' their follow up to their previous single 'All I want'. If you are yet to hear any music from Kodaline, think of a combination of Coldplay and Mumford & Sons. These comparisons have been floating around for a while and certainly sets a high bar for this Irish quartet. Kodaline sound perfectly polished without sounding slightly false or smoothed out, and whilst the music is definitely worth listening to, the music videos are just as much of an attraction to the band. Their tear jerking, heartfelt videos are enough to put most big budget music video efforts to shame. The band are definitely worth listening to if you haven't yet.

Vampire Weekend

Whilst I presume that the majority of you are already huge Vampire Weekend fans (if not you should be) the band have some new music coming your way. Whilst the new single Diane Young is available now, you have to wait for their new album 'Modern Vampire Of The City' to come out on May 13th (May 7th for any readers from the US). Just in time for summer, because if we're being honest, Vampire Weekend sound far better listened to whilst basking in the sun. It's been a massive four years since their last album 'Contra', and whilst four years is a long time, believe me 'Diane Young' is worth the wait. It has the potential to be the new 'A Punk' or 'Cousins', whilst being sufficiently different from their earlier sound it will no doubt be one of the soundtracks for summer 2013. At just 2 minutes 44 seconds of sheer brilliance it is definitely worth listening to. For those who haven't listened to the song yet it combines the use of grungy guitar and electronic deluges, the perfect amount of each to make the song work.

I guarantee that if you are a Fleetwood Mac fan, you will love the sound of the up and coming band, Haerts. This Brooklyn based band will soon be your new favourite band and are set for big things. Their debut released track wings has created a huge buzz and has left people begging for more.  Haerts have created a new genre, a sound that not only perfectly depicts the music of 2013, but also is reminiscent of years past, think Fleetwood Mac meets Stevie Nicks. There is no doubt that Haerts will be the next big thing, so listen to them now before everyone else does. Listen to their debut track 'Wings' and be transported to a music oasis.
