SUNDARA KARMA – SHE SAID

Prefered image

Forget the box, British newcomers Sundara Karma think outside the whole damn packing plant. Their songs are personal reactions to art, literature and culture – Plato, Wilde, Bram Stoker, Manet, Buddha – that tackle topics from online self-obsession, to consumer capitalism, to the smokescreen of the nuclear family, and the lies at the heart of the teenage dream. Lead singer Oscar Pollack, aged just twenty now and originally born in Singapore, is already emerging as the most captivating frontman, plucking at the long, silvery thread of rock’n’roll androgyny that runs through Bowie, Bolan, Suede and My Chemical Romance.

“I’ve never really felt like I fit in,” Pollack explains. “It’s not a bad thing – if you’re gonna wear eyeliner obviously there are going to be people not doing the same. But in the worlds of music and the creative, it’s really accepted to see these genre-crossing ideas.”
