U.K. indie quartet Sundara Karma emerged in 2014 with a bright, shimmering sound and great expectations.
Though their name may be based in Hindu/Buddhist origin, the Reading-based band arrived emitting pure waves of pop, beginning with early singles "Indigo Puff," "Loveblood," and "Flame." Longtime friends Oscar Lulu (vocals, guitar), Ally Baty (guitar), Dom Cordell (bass), and Haydn Evans soon earned themselves a deal with RCA
imprint Chess Club Records
, and after a pair of well-received 2015 EPs, they completed work on their debut album, Youth Is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect. The Larry Hibbitt-produced LP was released in January 2017 followed by several months of hard-touring. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
