News: Sundara Karma Announce Brand New Album ‘Better Luck Next Time’ Alongside Extensive UK Headline Tour

Sundara Karma have announced their highly anticipated third studio album ‘Better Luck Next Time’, due for release on 27th October 2023

Recorded with producer Rich Turvey (BlossomsCourteenersThe Wombats), it’s a collection of nine songs which explode with the exuberant indie effervescence that informed the sound of the band’s debut album. 

The exciting announcement also comes alongside news of an extensive UK tour planned for this November and December. It sees the band take on eighteen headline gigs around the UK this winter, culminating in a dazzling show in the capital at Electric Ballroom in Camden on the 13th December. 

Speaking about the tour vocalist Oscar Pollock says, “Very excited to tour again! It’s gonna be special playing these new songs live alongside all the songs that people have already let into their lives. I have a feeling this will be our best tour yet.

Last month Sundara Karma made their triumphant return with brand new single ‘Friends of Mine’.  Revisiting their euphoric indie roots, whilst simultaneously ushering in a new era for the four-piece, ‘Friends of Mine’ is a rallying call to arms, soaked in shimmering guitar riffs and big, bolstered percussion, much akin to the sounds pouring out of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’. 

Whilst the new release is an obvious departure of sound compared to the electro-pop elements of their last release, 2022’s ‘Oblivion!’ EP, Sundara Karma’s introspective lyrics, infectious melodies, and captivating performances have always been at the band’s core, as they continue to charm listeners and carve out their own unique space in the indie rock sphere. Their commitment to artistic growth and exploration promises exciting things to come for both the band and their dedicated fan base.
