Birmingham based indie four piece La Dharma have released their new single ‘Sirens’. The indie pop foursome La Dharma formed in the West Midlands in early 2017 with founding member Chris Leedham’s passion for writing slick meaningful stories embedded within 80’s pop sounds. La Dharma’s signature sound was born after further experimentation with guitarist and old friend Daniel ‘Jonah’ Jones’s indie background. However, the pair were missing the driving force behind the music and were joined by bassist Mick Madera and drummer James Morris to finish the line up with a tight funky rhythm section and after a successful first year of gigging,the band have had success with BBC WM introducing plays for their debut single ‘Devil in a Tight Dress’ and now after having a change of singer their next single ‘Sirens’ was debuted on BBC WM introducing.
‘Sirens’ is an effortless soothing creamy delight that floods with 80’s hued nostalgia upon a glorious indie speckled backdrop. The soft vocals coo and swoon over this glorious honey drizzled melody as a zesty zing on guitar laments and stings throughout. These guitar injections add an edge and ethereal quality to the track as they pine over the elastic bass and punchy drum foundation creating a heart gripping track with a luscious dreamy atmosphere. It’s sweet and light yet filled with rich textures and subtle intricate rhythms to make you feel every strike and woozy strum. With a catchy chorus and compact production this tune is easy to listen to and sweet like taffy. Their is something very special about this track – La Dharma are writing tunes to make you feel each delicate moment and that emotional attachment is something to treasure.
