Rival Karma | ICMP Spotlight

Our music careers and industry liaison team, The Hub, actively support and nurture all of the artists that pass through ICMP and are responsible for selecting our weekly #ICMPSpotlight artist. This week they've selected London rock duo Royal Karma.



Rockers Rival Karma feature Piergiorgio Ciarla, BA Creative Musicianship alumnus and ICMP Facilities team member among their line up, and are a band going from strength to strength ever since the release of their debut EP ‘Dames’ in 2016.   

Now playing as a power duo, they’re regularly played around London, including for the Sofar Sounds and recently recording at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.  

Having previously had airtime from the likes of Amazing Radio, they toured Europe at the end of last year and have even had their track ‘Lies’ featured in an advert by Maybelline NY.  You can catch them over dates in April and July and also when they return to Camden Rocks Festival this June.
