Sundara Karma Releases New EP “Kill Me”: Streaming
- British alt-pop band Sundara Karma released their fourth EP “Kill Me” on November 24, 2020 via Chess Club.
The EP comprises of 5-track, following their sophomore album “Ulfilas' Alphabet”, which was released in 2019.
On the same day of the release of the EP, the music video for “O Stranger” was premiered. Directed by Loona Riia.
The band worked with producers Clarence Clarity and Oscar Pollock for the EP in London.
Frontman Oscar Pollock said, “I definitely think there's still an organic nature to all of our music, which I hope we never lose. I think that's maybe what's at the core of the band. But the balance has been really beneficial. It feels like my writing needed that structure.”
He continued, “It was really exciting to work together… I've been a fan of his solo material for a while now and I think he's really helped me translate my songs into a more streamlined sequence of sounds. There's so much going on with each of these songs.”
The band predominantly wrote the EP over the last year, but completed during lockdown. “Some of these songs are from the collection that I'd just been chipping away at [over the past year],” he told DIY Magazine. “It was lockdown that became a catalyst for the focus of it. These ideas were there but they were finished in reaction to the current circumstances.”
- Oscar Pollock told DIY Magazine what the difference is between the second album and the new EP, “Musically, our last album was me testing out and experimenting with what I liked and what I wanted to do. I think of it as a really organic time in terms of my artistic output and my songwriting. What's funny about it is that I was unaware of it at the time, but looking back now, I was also really lacking that sense of identity myself, and knowing what it was that I was, and what my voice was.”
He continued, “I really admire people who are able to have a very distinct vibe from the get-go, but I just haven't been one of those types of people, and that's alright. It's just taken me a while to find my feet, and I hope this EP is a start to me really finding that.”
He added, “I want to say I'd like this to represent a significant point in our journey as a band; to signify a bolder sense of ourselves, a clearer sense of ourselves.”
