Sundara Karma announced today that they will return to North America this spring for a run of dates on Alt Nation’s Advanced Placement Tour presented by SiriusXM and Live Nation alongside MISSIO, Coast Modern and 888. See full routing below.
The young UK four-piece released their debut album, Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect, earlier this year via Bee & El/Sony RAL in the US. Their anthemic tracks and captivating live performances have garnered praise from NME, DIY, The Guardian, Brooklyn Vegan, Harper’s Bazaar, Under the Radar, Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1 and many more as well as a spot on the cover of Dork Magazine. Following their sold-out headline UK tour last month and a run of UK dates with Two Door Cinema Club, Sundara Karma will make their SXSW debut this March playing showcases with BBC, Clash Magazine, Austin City Limits, Culture Collide, Neon Gold and more.
The band was introduced to the US via buzz track “Loveblood,” which was a favorite on Alt Nation for months. New single “She Said” is making a splash in the UK and currently impacting in the US, where it is already securing major radio airplay and was the #1 most added at Alternative Radio on radio impact week. Last year, Sundara Karma made their debut opening the main stage at the UK’s biggest music festival, Reading & Leeds 2016, and co-headlined a run of US dates on the first ever BBC Music Presents US tour.
Sundara Karma– meaning “beautiful karma” in Sanskrit – are Oscar Pollock (vocals/guitar), Haydn Evans (drums), Dom Cordell (bass) and Ally Baty (guitar).
