Considering it sounds like the opening half-hour of a particularly hammy slasher film (or the cheesiest musical ever), at least Kodaline’s Hot Springs story has a happy ending. To set the scene: four pasty, fresh-faced Irish lads pitch up at a small, lakeside Arkansas town and start playing some songs by a campfire. They then head for the local watering-hole to meet the natives. You can hear the sinister banjo riffs already. Fear not, it was merely the highlight of the Swords pop-rockers’ recent jaunt Stateside.
