Karma Brigade – “ALIVE”


The euphoric “ALIVE” is a resonating track from Karma Brigade, a band from Reykjavík, Iceland. A grandiose opening captivates, showcasing the band’s versatility in the swift yet seamless shift from spirited energy — propelled by energetic percussion and lively piano — to a dreamier pop spectrum. Lyrical appreciation for life rouses into further climactic fervency, with a stadium-sized energy apparent in the lively instrumentation that leads the track’s second half.

“ALIVE” represents the first single from Karma Brigade’s upcoming album, These are the good old days. The single and album convey themes of appreciation and inspiration, particularly in experiencing life’s beauty and pursuing your dreams.

Below is the track’s music video, which captures the production’s soaring energy while featuring Esjan, one of the most notable mountains in Iceland.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2022’ Spotify playlist.
