Watch: Sundara Karma share a new video for ‘Explore’

Sundara Karma share a new video for ‘Explore’

They get up to come unexpected things at a funeral.

After announcing that they’d be releasing a special, expanded edition of their debut album ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’, Sundara Karma recently lifted the lid on brand new track ‘Explore’.

Now that track has a brand new video, and it’s a bit of a sombre occasion as they’re at a funeral. No, not really, it’s actually quite a fun sending off, with ritual masks, playing guitar in the forest and Oscar Lulu doing some epic dance moves.

Director Dan Brereton said of the clip: “Oscar mentioned wanting to do something based around a funeral, and I thought about how I could do it in a personal way, by having people and the band do things that are not expected of the occasion. I liked the idea of a funeral where people kiss, act nonplussed, bring their lizard and take selfies. We shot it in a great overgrown cemetery in the middle of London, with delusions of pere lachaise, and inspirations like Harold and Maude and Gates of Heaven”.

Sundara Karma also recently announced that they’d be going on a blimmin’ huge tour of the UK (their largest one to date in fact, featuring a show at London’s Brixton Academy). Not only that, but they’re bringing along The Magic Gang to boot! Happy days!
