My Sundara Karma’s spotlight blog post is far overdue. I’m sorry but my love for them is still very real.
Who is Sundara Karma?
Sundara Karma is an indie/rock band from Readings, England. The band consists of Oscar Lulu (vocals, guitar), Haydn Evans (drums), Ally Baty (guitar) and Dom Cordel (bass). They have been topping charts with their recent album Youth is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect with it topping the top 50 UK album charts.
Sundara Karma’s Sound.
Sundara Karma has this very underappreciated style that you cannot find on the radio nowadays in my opinion. They have this very poetic and soft grunge rock sound. I don’t want to compare them to any band because honestly, they are themselves. That is what I love about them.
Sundara Karma’s lyrics.
Sundara’s lyrics are very poetic and revolve around the everyday troubles of youth especially when you look their album Youth is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect. They sing about finding the hope of living to the misunderstood communication between lovers:
“But ain’t it funny that we’re never
Certain of the way we are
Another youth wasted and eternally tainted.”
Plus you if you are literature fanatic you can see the references they incorporate into their lyrics.
I believe this Sundara Karma is going to make even bigger than where they are today. They have a sound where you can identify them and say “hey that Sundara Karma”. Plus their style is overall is themselves from eyeshadow and blouses. Not only because of their talent but also their humbleness.
I saw them live back in April and they are the kindest band I have met. There were around 30 people and the crowd, but they played with such a passion. Not only that they said after and made sure they met everyone. Honestly, they pretty humble and their music and personality are going to take them even bigger.
