Acting as the figureheads for an emerging scene of intelligent indie, Sundara Karma’s debut is a rip-roaring voyage of exploration and an all-encompassing ode to youth.
Dubbed a 'band in waiting' by various outlets, Sundara Karma have filled their debut to the brim with hit after hit; it's hard to know where to begin.
This is a record made for the cavernous expanse of Brixton Academy, fancy light show in tow, chant-a-long choruses guaranteed.
‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’ perfectly narrates the roller coaster ride that is adolescence, and couldn’t be more relate-able if it tried.
Sundara Karma have talent, ambition, and youth on their side, but so do a lot of other rising bands. In the end, it's personality and distinction that endure.
Though there’s more than a glimmer of Arcade Fire’s arena-filling magic, it’s all too often overshadowed by a watered-down, easily digestible form of rock that wouldn’t be out of place next to Coldplay on the V Festival line-up.
