Karmarma the album

Karmarama is the second album of Irish pop band Picturehouse.

It was released by the label East West in 1998 and went Platinum within a month. The Dublin based band first came to real prominence via the Irish music scene in the late 90's with their independently released debut album 'Shinebox'. As a result they soon found themselves getting invites from big name acts to join them on tour including; The Corrs, Mel C, Texas, Runrig, Bon Jovi, The Divine Comedy and the one and only Meat Loaf!

To launch Karmarama, the band toured Europe for a massive 2 years and according to Dave Browne (lead singer and song writer) 'it's where the madness really happened!'. Sunburst, a track off the album went down a storm and subsequently spent 8 weeks at 18 in the Irish charts. Watch it below...
