Who Is Sundara Karma?

Today's act is English indie-pop outfit Sundara Karma, a four-piece consisting of lead singer/guitarist Oscar "Lulu" Pollock, lead guitarist Ally Baty, bassist Dom Cordell and drummer Haydn Evans. Their knack for infectious indie-rock-pop records is undeniable, they've been compared to the likes of Arcade Fire and U2 by British newspaper The Guardian. They've supported acts such as Two Door Cinema Club and Bastille on tour which feels like appropriate slots for a band who could easily follow in their footsteps.
Their latest album Ulfilas' Alphabet was released on March 1 and features the single "Green Hands" that echoes the sounds of early Arcade Fire, if you take a listen below I think you'll agree, too.
While their new album Ulfilas' Alphabet is definitely worth a full listen from start to finish, I beg you not to miss out on their back catalog! There's the playful surfer-pop stylings of "She Said" that will shower you with feel-good vibes.
Then there's the electric energy of their 2015 single "Flame" that delivers an infectiously scorching hook that can stand the test of time, it's triumphant in original and remix form!
The original version of "Flame" is like a long lost brother to the indie-rock-pop days when Phoenix, Foster the People and other similar acts ruled the musical blog-o-sphere. One listen and you will be floored with their vocals, tight production, melodic sensibilities and visual performance.
Now here's the remix with a stunning groove that keeps all of the genius of the original in tact while flipping the song into a day rave, dance floor clapper! It's one of my favorite remixes of recent years and truly captures the magic of the song while amping up the energy which is not an easy task but I suppose when you're working with a song as brilliant as "Flame," it comes naturally.
Moving forward with all of the knowledge of Sundara Karma I've just imparted on you, I think you'll find that they're incredible worthy of your attention. Check out their announce 2019 live dates below!
