The Melbourne native currently Berlin based artist Evan Klar drops his new single ‘2 Thumbs Up’ and the tune wraps us up nicely and really makes us feel uplifted.
What started as another trip back to his roots at the beginning of 2020, turned into a different kind of journey, as he found himself stranded at the concrete shores of Berlin, Germany with no way out but his music. Evan says: “2 Thumbs Up is an accepting high five, with a smile, to all things we should/need to address to become fully integrated with our life experience. Unresolved pain in particular… our monsters as some might call them. I wrote this song with Hailey Collier and Nikolai Potthoff, two close friends who make me really happy. Taking care of yourself and your mental health is easily forgotten, especially when trying to create something. If I’m going to keep making art whilst swimming in my emotions everyday then I’m going to write songs that help myself and hopefully those listening.”

About the video he explains: “2 thumbs up to my favourite kinda day in Berlin. I moved here last year pre pandemic feeling disoriented, kinda failing to fight the cold but, as per, writing songs kept me from losing my spirit. I’m out on my board every day skating to the studio or heading out to spots with new friends. I guess this clip represents a transition, not just for me but for anyone who knows what it’s like to walk out from the cold and feel the warmth of the sun for the first time in ages. Here’s a glimpse down the beautiful streets of Berlin.”
