Sundara Karma share ‘Happy Family’ from forthcoming debut, ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’

The LP is out next month.

With just weeks to go until of Sundara Karma’s debut album, ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’ is unleashed to the world, the band - who completely ‘smashed it’ on the DIY Readers’ Poll, as some would say - are sharing another track from the record.

‘Happy Family’ is an Americana-infused stomp, following on from indie dancefloor smasher ‘She Said’ and live favourite ‘Olympia’. Spoiler: this record’s ‘a bit of alright’.

Of the song, frontman Oscar Lulu says: “When writing I tend not to have any clue where the song is going, it’s only once the song’s been written that I find the meaning or sense in it. Unwittingly it turned out to be the saddest song on the record.”

‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’ is released on 6th January. Sundara Karma tour the UK from later that month, including dates in support of Two Door Cinema Club.
