Reading-based indie pop sorts Sundara Karma have just put out their new single ‘She Said’ and you can stream it below. It’s set to be released on their debut album, Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect, alongside existing singles ‘Vivienne’, ‘A Young Understanding’, and ‘Flame’.

This new cut is among some of the slickest indie pop to come out of Britain since The Vaccines and will help propel you with positivity from now until the weekend.

Speaking about ‘She Said', lead singer Oscar Pollock said: "When all the drink has been drunk, when all the flirting has fumbled, then we might ask ourselves; should I have gone to the club?"

The album will be released on 6 January via Chess Club/RCA, who also helped launch the successful careers of Swim Deep and Wolf Alice.

The Reading four-piece have had a mammouth year so far with two sold out headline tours and acclaimed performances at Glastonbury, Dot to Dot and Secret Garden Party under their belts. Next up they’re set for Reading/Leeds main stage slots and another headline tour, this time taking in bigger venues including London’s Heaven.

The band popped into our office last year for a stripped back session and were touring around in a tiny white van. It can’t be long until the luxury sleeper buses are their new home. They’ve got such a natural flair for writing hits that they’ll make a big dent in the charts next year.

Here’s the track listing to the new debut album:
1. A Young Understanding
2. Loveblood
3. Olympia
4. Happy Family
5. Flame
6. Lose That Feeling
