Here's a 7" of hazy epic indiepop from Sundara Karma, about whom I know nothing.

'Cold Heaven' has got a galloping little drumbeat and big chiming U2 guitars and blurry "oo-ee-ooh" backing vocals that remind me of that MGMT song and slightly strained vocals that are somewhere between Chris Martin, Win Butler and that fella from Passion Pit. It's got a wispy feel that you can really imagine blasting airily across fields at a big festival near you this summer. I will have forgotten how it goes by the end of the day.

Over on the other side 'The Night' dispenses of the stadium grandiosity for a soulful ballad underpinned by a slow-modulating synth throb. That voice that was irritating me on side A has suddenly become a beautifully howled Future Islands-ish soul croon, and then there's a delightfully slow, murky Afghan Whigs-esque guitar solo. This is beautiful, I can barely believe it's the same band.

So that's the story here; insipid stadium indie-dance on the A side, redeemed beautifully by an understated alt-soul gem on the B side. The high score is all for the B side.
