The Kara Sea was a one-woman band; the woman in question is Glaswegian/Mancunian hybrid multi-instrumentalist and “flâneuse” (according to an early review) Sarah Bradley, who guides violins, guitars, omnichords and assorted found-sounds into songs that have been described as “Cocteau Twins-esque electronica”. After spending her formative years working as co-founder of Valentine Records, DJing, playing keyboards in Manc pop band Megarider and generally partying it up, Sarah turned her attention to solo recording in 2006, and released a handful of well-received tracks online and through low-key releases.
The Kara Sea played several gigs in Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds, as well as recording tracks that were showcased on compilation and split EP releases on several DIY labels. Bradley drew a line under The Kara Sea project in 2009
