The ShortListen: Sundara Karma (no. 316)

Who? Sundara Karma

What’s the story? We've been fans of Reading quartet Sundara Karma ever since featuring their first track almost two years ago. Since then they've released a steady stream of indie anthems-in-waiting, slowly building up their fanbase to the point where they're playing the main stage at Reading and Leeds Festival in August. Now, they're making their bid to go even bigger with the rerelease of Loveblood, which we've been tipping as a hit to anyone who will listen ever since we first wrote about it. Piledriving drums, widescreen guitars and a gloriously massive, strident chorus. If Kings of Leon released this, it'd be number one for months. Magnificent stuff.

For fans of: White Lies, The Hunna, Kings of Leon

In three words: Future indie anthem
