As the new issue of HP - with Dublin act Kodaline on the cover - hits shelves, we're delighted to present the Hot Press Storeroom Session the lads recently did for us.
The Swords four-piece are set to release debut album In A Perfect World in May, but have already hit the top of the singles chart with 'High Hopes'. Watch them perform both that and the excellent 'All I Want', below.
Read our full interview with the boys in our new issue, in shops now.
