Hi, I’m Kar and I'm an indie-electro artist and producer.

Growing up in a musical household in Dundee, Scotland, I played in orchestras, brass bands and ensembles of seemingly-random combinations of instruments.

I was a member of critically-acclaimed indie miserablists The Scottish Enlightenment, playing bass and cornet. My highlights were supporting Idlewild; making the Eyes video which was shown on MTV2 and VH1; and singing on the celebrated St Thomas album.

I'm now settled in the boldly-creative city of Manchester, England, soaking up its musical legacy.


We Were The Brightest

A nostalgic indie-electro song.

We Were The Brightest is written, performed & produced by Kar Stanton, formerly of critically acclaimed Scottish indie miserablists The Scottish Enlightenment (BBC 6music, MTV2, VH1).
