Trekking into tour mode, Evan Klar today announces new headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne to celebrate the release of his latest single ‘Barefoot’. Klar will head line Sydney’s Rare Finds on Friday June 30 and perform just over a week later at Yah Yah’s in Melbourne.
There’s a percussive grounding which serves as the driving force for Evan Klar‘s music. It’s this uniqueness and almost tribal sonic sphere that has a steady legion of fans crossing his path. Named as one of GQ Magazine’s ‘Ones to Watch in 2017’, the Melbourne based musician’s ‘Barefoot’ premiered on 2017 with Richard Kingsmill, was added to triple j spot rotation and has amassed almost 500,000 plays on Spotify in just two months. He’s now well on the way to cracking a million plays online this month with just two tracks released.
A visual and aural feast, Evan Klar’s live show is a high energy, sensory experience. Performing with a double drum kit and bongo drums, Klar’s “commanding live vocals lure the listener into his undeniably likeable structure of musical compositions.” (The Music).
Not tip-toeing about on the live front, the half Australian, half German musician has been leaving plenty of footprints on stages in 2017 with performances at festivals The Blurst of Times, The Mountain Goat Valley Crawl and support for Confidence Man at three sold out shows. As he prepares to release his debut album compiled with producer Ash Workman (Metronomy and Christine and The Queens) fans can expect to hear debut offerings ‘Barefoot’ and ‘Sleep’ as well as a selection of yet unreleased tracks.
