Sundara Karma – Olympia

A band meaning serious business.

Sundara Karma - OlympiaSundara Karma’s album might originally have been mooted for 2016, but when you hear ‘Olympia’ it’s easy to understand why they’ve chosen to give it a longer run up. Despite playing the Main Stage of their hometown Reading Festival in the summer, there are bigger prizes afoot. The throne of British indie, for example.

Squint a bit, and the verses of the four piece’s latest offering could pass for The Maccabees at the heigh of their powers – a slot for a sort-of-smart, kind-of-mainstream band that’s both wide open and demands to be filled. Coupled with a massive chorus, and they’re a band meaning serious business. Play that card effectively, and the sky’s the limit.
