Rising Reading indie outfit Sundara Karma have officially released soaring new single “Loveblood” this week.
Having originally appeared on the band’s debut EP early last year, the driving rock number is now out as a single via Chess Club/RCA. “Loveblood” oozes energy with its almost psychedelic swirling guitars, lively percussion and a conquering display from vocalist Oscar Lulu who had this to say about the track: “The song is about fate, love and tragedy. A kind of Romeo and Juliet inspired thing. It’s also inspired by Oscar Wilde’s short story Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime. Mysteries of the unexplained is something that has a huge appeal for me.”
The band will no doubt receive a large amount of industry attention both in print and on radio in the run up to festival season as the band have a plethora of dates scheduled at Dot To Dot, 110 Above, Glastonbury, Blissfields, Truck Festival, Secret Garden Party, Tramlines, Bluedot, Y Not, Kendal Calling, Forgotten Fields, Summer Well, Electric Fields, Reading and Leeds, and LodeStar.
The track will feature on the quartet’s as-yet-unnamed debut album tipped for release after summer.
