News Sundara Karma

A big guitar-wielding band in waiting: Sundara Karma have it all.


: Sundara Karma
Based: Reading
Listen: ‘Freshbloom
Similar to: JAWS, Bombay Bicycle Club

Sundara Karma are born and raised in Reading. Surely it’s only a matter of time before they become staples of the festival in their home town. They’re all under 18 years of age. Their sound nods towards Swim Deep’s pointed escapism while also latching onto a punchier, more all-rejoicing verve. Had these guys emerged from B-town last year they’d already be high up on festival billings and ecstatic fans’ tumblr feeds.

As it happens, they’re joining Swim Deep on half of their current UK tour. Debut track ‘Freshbloom’ is completely catered to the giddy audiences bound to be flocking to these shows. Wielding guitars and sporting something with more than a casual gaze on the charts, if you consider Bombay Bicycle Club, Two Door etc.’s successful shoe-ins to top 40s, Sundara Karma are the next in waiting.
