Sundara Karma are back, and they’ve pulled the handbreak with a brand new direction.
The band have dropped a new track, ‘Illusions’, which sees the Reading four piece embark down a psychy, twisted, brilliantly weird pop road. Produced by Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers, Les Rhythm Digitales) and Kaines (Alex from Everything Everything), it’s world apart from the bombastic indie of 2017 debut ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’. You can check it out below.
Lead singer Oscar Pollock explains: “The song is a groovy slow pumper, our best effort ever at being both sensual and enlightening. In times of horror and uncertainty we need love and positivity and the ability to recognise that everything around us is temporary. I like to think we are not separate from one another, every single thing we do affects the people and the world around us. From macro to micro – from our inner world to the outer world. Easier said than done and much easier sung than said.”
Sundara Karma will showcase new material from their forthcoming second album with a special ‘Halloween underplay show’ at London’s Omeara later this month on 24th October. Tickets are on sale now.
Details of more live shows, and that new album, are said to be coming ‘soon’. You can read more from Sundara Karma in the next issue of Dork, out this Friday, 12th October.
