Liverpool alternative rock quintet Karuna go for a broad sound on their debut single Sink Or Swim. Twin guitar counter-melodies, that come close to prog, are riding on top of shape-shifting rhythms. Lead singer Rosa Jane rose to the challenge with a voice that is part folk and part goth.
With such an ambitious song they needed an ace mastering guy and Pete Maher (Jack White, Noel Gallagher, The Rolling Stones) delivered a crystal clear sound in which each instrument and vocal line gets its place in the spotlights.
