Sundara Karma have released their long-awaited third studio album 'Better Luck Next Time'- listen here.
Indie rock sensation Sundara Karma is poised to make a resounding return with their latest album, 'Better Luck Next Time.' This release marks a pivotal moment in the band's musical journey, by taking it back to their highly acclaimed debut in 2017 'Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect', and also stands as their first full length since 2019's 'Ulfilas' Alphbet'. Packing nine indie anthems that showcase the band's evolving prowess in crafting compelling melodies and poignant lyrics, 'Better Luck Next Time' promises to be a standout of the year and a future classic to come for the beloved four-piece.
The journey to this momentous release has been paved with a string of big singles, including the infectious 'Friends of Mine,' an ode to friendship reminiscent of their early work. 'Baby Blue' offers a sugary rush of effervescent guitars and charging drums, capturing the frenetic energy of falling in love. Meanwhile, 'Wishing Well' takes an introspective turn, delving into themes of regret and the 'what ifs' in life, creating a melancholic yet powerful track. The album also features 'Miss Again,' a soul-stirring composition that echoes the poignant ache of separation and the yearning for a lost connection.
The album's title track and today's new single, 'Better Luck Next Time,' is a focal point of the release. This captivating anthem showcases the band's trademark blend of catchy melodies and insightful lyricism, promising to leave a lasting impression on fans and newcomers alike.
Lead vocalist and guitarist Oscar Pollock said: " You know, it's wild – this is the first time I've ever written an entire album to coincide with a tour. I mean, it's usually the other way around, but life can throw you some curveballs. I got to say, it's been a blessed journey. Despite all the ups and downs, I'm genuinely very happy about how this record has turned out.! We’re excited to play these new tunes live and see how our fans react to them at our shows. Your love and support mean the world to us. Loving you always and forever!"
To celebrate the release of their third studio album, Sundara Karma will also be hitting the road again on an extensive UK tour, for the first time in four and half years. Through November and December, the tour sees the band take on eighteen headline gigs around the UK, culminating in a dazzling show in the capital at Camden's Electric Ballroom on the 13th December.
