Listen: Kodaline - Gabriel

Yep, they're covering Roy Davis Jr.
Kodaline

Kodaline have covered the Roy Davis Jr. garage classic 'Gabriel' - listen to it below.

Kodaline thrive on classic songwriting. Theirs is a universe occupied by subtle middle eights, by choruses designed to sweep up bands by the thousand.

Debut album 'In A Perfect World' is out now (Clash review HERE) and, with summer now underway, the Irish band are lining up their next move.

New EP 'Brand New Day' features some newly recorded material, including an unexpected cover. An absolute classic from the early days of UK Garage, 'Gabriel' by Roy Davis Jr. is a soulful piece of British electronica.

Seizing the skeleton of the song from the production, Kodaline do what Kodaline do best: they supply a simple, earnest arrangement which seems to slip under your skin.

Listen to it now.

'Brand New Day' EP is set to be released on August 26th.
