Sundara Karma - Little Smart Houses
Published: 9:34 am, February 19, 2019

It's not that Sundara Karma weren't Very Good Indeed on their debut album. They were. 'Youth Is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect' remains a mighty fine record - but, with follow up 'Ulfilas’ Alphabet', it almost feels like it was the work of a completely different band. In a good way.

The tasters we've had of the quartet's second full-length have been transformational. From opening hint 'Illusions' to the barnstorming 'One Last Night on This Earth', Sundara Karma have become almost other worldly - a shimmering presence capable of flying higher than before.

Latest offering 'Little Smart Houses' is no different. There are undertones of all kinds of classic influence to Sundara's 2019 vintage, but combined they make something that also feels as fresh and exciting as any indie band has any right to be. Perhaps it's because they're starting to transcend those narrow definitions, or perhaps it's because they're starting to realise who they really are. Whatever the answer is, long may it continue.
