And so, with days to go until until this years Tramlines Festival in Sheffield, GIGsoup have selected a group of artists we feel you simply shouldn’t miss.
Today we feature Reading four-piece Sundara Karma. Big chorus’s, cleverly orchestrated indie-rock and the sort of uplifting instrumentation that guarantees this band are merely at the beginning of what will no doubt be a long and successful career. There are anthems aplenty and tracks that demand stadium karaoke, all of which bodes well for a group that have been together for less than 5 years.
Wet your tastebuds with ‘Flame’ and ‘Loveblood’ for an idea of what you’re in for from their set at this weekends Tramlines Festival….it’s all so damn addictive. We spoke to lead singer Oscar Lulu about this weekends event…
Summarise your sound in one sentence.
Fat as fuck.
How do you feel about playing at the biggest and most sprawling Tramlines Festival yet?
Very excited, hope we get to spend some time checking out the festival.

There’s some great hidden gem venues dotted around Sheffield – have you got any fond past memories in the Steel City?
A dreadful memory springs to mind, through no fault of Sheffield. We had a massive night out in Manchester after we sold out The Gorilla and don’t think any of us slept so when we arrived in Sheffield the next day we were pretty worse for wear.
Arctic Monkeys or Pulp?
What’s been your favourite past gig, and why?
Yak was really great. I just remember walking away from the gig with some blokes blood on my shirt.
What was the most surreal moment in your musical career?
Ai Weiwei following us on twitter
What music is getting you excited at the moment?
Palm Honey, The Amazons, Goldn and Haize
What are your 3 festival essentials?
Shades, wellies and some clothing for your body (all of these are optional to be fair)
Finally, what have you got in store for your performance in Sheffield this summer?
Just some music stuff
