Dublin fourpiece Kodaline have sailed to No 1 in the Irish charts with their debut album In a Perfect World.

The band launched the album onboard the MV Cill Airne - rechristened the Kodaliner for the day - on the Liffey yesterday with their parents and grandparents in attendance among the media scrum.

Kodaline are expected to deliver a double No 1 whammy when they top the UK chart with In a Perfect World this Sunday.

There are also new album entries by Kanye West with Yeesus and chilled Icelandic act Sigur Ros. Over in the singles bar, Robin Thicke spends an incredible sixth week at No 1 with Blurred Lines.
