I have been meaning to see Sundara Karma for quite some time now but alas whenever they have come to town our diaries have clashed and I missed out.
Tonight however this was all to change as I headed down to the Brudnell Social club.
I am quite used to being one of the first if not the very first person to arrive at a venue and having to patiently wait outside until the doors open so you can imagine my surprise that the Brudnell was already filling up before even the first support had come on stage.
First up were Londoners Joy Room and even though their variety of screamo rock was not my taste I appreciated how passionate they were and how they really got into the zone whilst they were playing.
Everyone loves an over enthusiastic drummer.
FREAK were up next, Freak by name and very much Freak by nature. This rock trio from Essex was so energetic that even with the copious amounts of red bull that I spied back stage any lesser mortal would have struggled to keep up.
After a failed stage invasion and a mosh pit that kept on growing Freak surpassed my expectations once more with some epic crowd surfing skills.
As we patiently waited for the instruments to be changed for Sundara Karma, the headline act, I was jostled further and further away from the stage. Sad face
I was still only three people deep though.
As the lights dimmed and the background music ceased you could feel the tension rising and there was a huge cheer as Sundara Karma entered the room.
Crowd surfing and failed stage invasions seemed to be a recurring theme as one after one a ‘devoted’ fan would run across the stage. Much to the chagrin of security.
Sundara Karma are perhaps best known for ‘Loveblood’ but it was their latest single ‘She Said’ that impressed me the most and by this point I had retreated to the back of the room for ample space to dance.
Sundara Karma are set to release their debut album in January so you can expect to see great things from this foursome.
