ABOUT instant karma

 

Instant Karma was born in the year 2000 as a joint venture record company with Sony Music. Its first release was the Mercury-nominated Helicopter Girl - its last the international hit (and UK #5) 'Mundian To Bach Ke" by Panjabi MC.

We made some fabulous records in our short life and punctured the charts with more great artists including the mighty I Monster, The Alice Band, Addis Black Widow and Eberg plus modern classics by Caroline Dale, 'highbrow supergroup' Ghostland and many more. 

 A diverse catalogue that now operates under the aegis of sister company Dharma Records.

But that's enough about us. 

 

 

THE KENNEDY SOUNDTRACK | B-SIDES — OUT NOW = Listen here

Hailing from the Valleys of South Wales, The Kennedy Soundtrack blend a mix of styles to form their own unique sound. Originally taking influence from hip hop and the alternative rock movements of the 1990's, they cut their teeth playing the legendary TJ's in Newport.  Signing to Instant Karma in 200 the band went on to play numerous festivals including Reading and Leeds and toured extensively with the likes of Pitchshifter, Taproot, Senser, Pink(!) and fellow Newportonians Skindred.  Releasing their album "Tale of 2 Cities" in 2002 they were nominated for Best Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards and won best newcomers at the Welsh Music Awards in the same year.  They enjoyed success with the release of their first single "Killing Music" which reached the top 5 of the Kerrang! charts and their follow up singles 24/7 and Bloodshot Eyes hit the national charts.  After a 16 year hiatus the band have reunited and entered the studio with Romesh Dodangonda (BringMe The Horizon, Funeral For A Friend, Kids In Glass Houses etc) to write and record new record. The first fruits of this collaboration is this reworking of their classic The Wrong Day, which follows the release in December of their B-sides and rarities album and their first (sold out!) live show in 16 years!

Originally a four-piece from Sheffield, Blossomer have been teasing the music world with their extraordinary music for a couple of years, without actually releasing anything, leading to increasingly heightened interest from a&r, booking agents, lawyers and the media at large. During that time their live performances have flourished and their sound has developed over what has been an intense creative period.

And so it comes to pass that Blossomer the band are no more. A line-up change has given way to an exciting shift in musical direction and soon a new entity will rise like Lazarus leaving behind a remarkable yet unreleased body of work.

Enter Instant Karma.

Or should we say re-enter. Instant Karma has reactivated its beloved imprint and is proud to bring you this amazing record.
