Buddhism in the mountains of his father’s native Nepal and quietly absorbing records, culture and more records in Braidwood, he has transmuted his experiences into a remarkable body of tunes that have been carefully handpicked and moulded into a blindingly well-crafted debut eponymous EP.
Fuzzed-out guitar, instant hooks, razor-sharp percussive triggers and sweeping synthscapes are layered with melodic vocal lines that lie somewhere between the rhythms of hip hop, the urgency of youth and the hypnotics of dance.
From the instant dance-floor classic ‘Like a Machine’, to the club-ready rolling beats of ‘I Want You It’s So Bad’ , through to the sing-along summer vibe of ‘It’s a Beautiful Day’, Karuna has created a genuinely unique sound that could be described as a collaboration between Beck, The Postal Service and Outkast for an upcoming remake of Bladerunner.
Not one to shy away from performing live, Karuna - as a founding member of Australian tweak-hop troubadours the Bumblebeez - has toured throughout the UK, Europe and Australia in support of Radiohead, N*E*R*D, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and many more.
