Kodaline were formed in the quartet's small Irish hometown of Swords and performed regularly in nearby Dublin. Frontman Steve Garrigan told The Sun
that this song, "is about the band leaving the town and seeing the world."
When we spoke with the band's drummer Vinny May
in 2014, he explained that their success hasn't changed them. "We're still the same people," he said. "We still hang with the same friends when we go home. We haven't really changed that way. Just the same four guys as when we started this thing. The only thing that's changed is that we get people's different perspectives on the songs."
