Providing the soundtrack for countless adverts, films and TV shows, Kodaline have a knack for creating joyous indie-pop tracks.
Fans of Grey’s Anatomy, The Fault in Our Stars and Gogglebox will recognise some of their songs.
Despite superstardom having escaped them so far, Kodaline have been going strong for over a decade (changing name from 21 Demands to Kodaline in 2012). The fact they straddle pop and indie will see all ages and appearances show up at their upcoming o2 Academy gig in Glasgow. The warmth of the band’s gentle, acoustic-led sound will be sure to set a cosy scene in the November gig.

Emeli Sande, real name Adele (that must’ve been annoying) emerged at the beginning of the decade having been a writer for several other artists. Since coming to prominence, she has worked with the likes of Tinie Tempah, Professor Green, Gucci Mane and Giggs.
Born in the north of England and growing up in Aberdeen, Sande has weaved her way into becoming a household name up and down the country. Having been quiet recently, she will look to explode back into the public consciousness with the aid of this tour and the featuring of her song Extraordinary Being in blockbuster X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
The Armadillo provides a sizeable space but one less cavernous than close neighbour The Hydro.

Barely a month goes by without us mentioning Lewis Capaldi. With his seemingly never-ending TV appearances and his uniquely insightful social media posts regarding fame, fortune and life on the road, it would be easy to forget that Capaldi is a mighty fine young songwriter with a fantastic voice that belies his age.
His debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent spawned several singles including Bruises, Lost on You and Someone You Loved, the latest seemingly being played on a loop by several radio stations.
Primed for taking a step, or leap, up to the next level, Capaldi has it in him to become a huge name all over the world. For now though, he is still able to make it back home for the Christmas holiday period.
Catch him while you can…
Glasgow o2 Academy, December 7 and 8 .
