|.......................................THE BAND AND RECORD OF THE MONTH|
Here´s one of the sensations from the England that come with one marvelous release at the beginning of this year. Karnataka has ability to express his feelings and emotions through his beautiful music. The music from this band is rich, where all the instruments sounds are crystalline and audible, you can listen a marvelous instrumental development in the guitars and keyboards also adding a nice and soft vocal performance. There is something magical on the instruments and vocals, strong melodic material where everything is perfect. It is certain that, this magical feeling comes of wonderful and highly talented musicians. To compare with others known bands, Karnataka follows the same style and ways of bands as: Yes or Mostly Autumn.
Formed in the late 1990s, Karnataka have emerged as one of the UK's most innovative new rock bands. Unrestrained by musical boundaries, the dramatic, multi-layered soundscapes created by the band combine with haunting vocal melodies to take the listener on an inspirational journey. For their new studio album 'Delicate Flame Of Desire', Karnataka have teamed up with highly regarded Warner/Chappell producer Steve Evans and engineer Joe Gibb (whose work includes Catatonia's ' International Velvet' and Leftfield's 'Leftism') to create an outstanding work of exceptionally strong, melodic songs with dynamic and evocative symphonic arrangements set against a highly polished production. Eight months in the making, "Delicate Flame of Desire" has already been picked up for airplay by Bob Harris and is poised to build on the success of it's predecessors and begin a new chapter in the band's career.
The band's first two albums ('Karnataka' 1998, 'The Storm' 2000) have attracted a growing worldwide audience and gained considerable attention from all aspects of the music media, including radio, magazine and internet features in Europe, Asia and the Americas. In the UK Karnataka have received the recognition they deserve with Best New Band (2000) and Best Female Vocalist (Rachel Jones for an unprecedented 3 years running in 2000, 2001 & 2002) awards from the Classic Rock Society. 'The Storm' was featured as Album Of The Week on BBC Radio Wales and has received repeated airplay on the Bob Harris Radio 2 show.
