British rising four-piece, Sundara Karma released a moving visual for track “Happy Family” – CLICK HERE to watch via The FADER. The video complements the alt rock song’s folk-inflected stomp by capturing a heartfelt story of a pre-teen boy left home alone to fend for himself while clearly missing his absent mother.
“The story was inspired by both the lyrics and experiences from when I was a kid. After speaking to [Sundara Karma frontman] Oscar, the idea reflected his own childhood too and it was great to talk it through with him,” said director Stroma Cairns. “I instantly loved the track and felt like the epic progression suited a narrative that builds. The boy in the video gets more and more frustrated with his loneliness, ending with a release dancing in and clutching onto his mother’s red dress, really revealing his desire and need to feel close to her.” Oscar added, “I thought Stroma’s treatment was charming and sweet, it brought a tear to my eye. I only wish that my mum had such dresses when I was younger.”
The band will return to North America next month (April 2017) for a select run of spring headline shows and tour dates on Alt Nation’s Advanced Placement Tour. See full routing below and CLICK HERE to purchase tickets.
