Fresh from supporting Two Door Cinema Club recently at Southampton Guildhall, latest indie sensations Sundara Karma stormed The Wedge with their own eagerly awaited long sold out show last night.

Franz Ferdinand once said: ‘If you can get the girls to dance then the boys will follow,’ and that was certainly the case here.

It’s been a while seen I’ve seen such an exuberant audience, with the room bouncing from the front of the stage to the back of the room. Opening with the appropriately titled A Young Understanding, the four 20-year-olds from Reading never let the pace drop all night.

Lead singer Oscar Pollock is a charismatic frontman, with his lank blonde hair and skinny frame, it’s easy to see why he’s got women swooning.

Guitarist Dom Cordell sports a crowd-pleasing Pie & Vinyl T-Shirt, the band having made an in-store appearance at the Southsea store earlier in the day.

The band have a summer of festivals lined up, culminating with our own Victorious Festival. No doubt the mosh pit will be sizeably larger than here – make sure you are there.
