Cat Velez - 10th June 2015

Kodaline have released this poignant, power-anthem of a video for Ready, directed by Abteen Bagheri.

Featuring a strong lead performance by actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse -better known as McLovin in Superbad- it follows a downtrodden former jockey who's been forced off the racetrack due to an injury that has left him disabled.

Expressing the vitality and spirit of the song, the uncomplicated and moving narrative sees him overcoming the psychological and physical obstacles keeping him from getting back on the horse.
