Death pop music makers assemble - we’re here to corrupt the innocent.

Banger


A band can achieve nothing until they’re comfortable in their own skin. That’s what’s so attractive about Sundara Karma. Under everything, there’s this confidence that they really could be the heirs to the indie throne.

Because though there’s a rich vein of brilliant bands bursting through right now, few encapsulate that youthful energy coupled with cutting showmanship in the way Reading’s finest can.

‘Explore’, the first of three new tracks taken from a new reissue of their debut album ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’, shows those credentials off perfectly. A rattling, roaring jam, its lyrics scream of a band who are aware of their place in the chain. Death pop music makers assemble - we’re here to corrupt the innocent. Stephen Ackroyd
