SXSW 2013: Kodaline Share Their Top 5 ‘Can’t Miss’ Acts

Kodaline
RCA

We asked a number of bands performing at SXSW 2013 to give us their list of “can’t miss” acts for this year’s event. Irish band Kodaline offered up the five choices shown below.

Kodaline have earned praise from Perez Hilton, the Boston Globe, and the BBC. The four-man band consisting of Steve Garrigan, Mark Prendergast, Jason Boland, and Vinny May is releasing a debut U.S. single, ‘All I Want,’ available now on iTunes. In the meantime, the guys have four SXSW gigs lined up, two each on March 13 and 14.

Kodaline’s list of “can’t miss” acts for SXSW 2013 includes one of PopCrush’s own Must-See SXSW Artists, plus a rock supergroup and three emerging acts. Check out their picks and their commentary.

Lianne La Havas

RECOMMENDED TRACK: 'Is Your Love Big Enough?'
 
 

We love the Lianne La Havas record, and she's amazing live. We've played with her a few times.

Sound City Players

RECOMMENDED TRACK: 'You Can't Fix This'
 
 

We watched the Sound City documentary last week and it blew us away. There's so many amazing musicians playing together it would be amazing to see it live.

Little Green Cars

RECOMMENDED TRACK: 'Harper Lee'
 
 

These guys are also Irish and we've yet to see them live. They've got some great tunes.

Jake Bugg

RECOMMENDED TRACK: 'Seen It All'
 
 

We listened to Jake Bugg's album when we were on tour last month, and it's a great driving record.

Haim

RECOMMENDED TRACK: 'Don't Save Me'
 
 

We played a festival with Haim in Amsterdam last year. We saw them there and they were cool. Be grand to see them again.
