Sundara Karma have solidified their comeback with blistering, funk-laden gripper ‘Illusions’. Just tipping over five minutes long, the psychedelic romp, co-produced by Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers, Les Rhythm Digitales) and Kaines (Alex from Everything Everything), is the first taste of new stuff from their second album, due for release next year.
Channeling a nod to Bowie-esque vocals entwined with smooth and sultry guitars, with an immersive, rocketing solo, you can listen to the new cut below.
Detailing the track vocalist and guitarist Oscar Pollock says, “The song is a groovy slow pumper, our best effort ever at being both sensual and enlightening. In times of horror and uncertainty we need love and positivity and the ability to recognise that everything around us is temporary. I like to think we are not separate from one another, every single thing we do affects the people and the world around us. From macro to micro - from our inner world to the outer world. Easier said than done and much easier sung than said.”
The new song also comes with the announcement of a one-off, intimate show at London’s Omeara on 24 October, where the band will be debuting new material as well as revisiting old favourites. Join the waiting list to be in with a chance of nabbing tickets here.
