From wildly universal, but intimately wrought, acoustic confessionals to inspiring alternative pop anthems - Klark’s music contains a colossal amount of slickly-addictive polish. A world of masterful compositions that are alarmingly tribal and cinematic, doused with provocative hooks, flickering synths and live instruments. Meanwhile, his vocal is undeniable, sharply-dressed onto the storytelling lyrics, and you feel the weight of every single syllable. He pours his heart out, and we’re just along for the ride.

Bouncing between up-tempo, elastic “ear candy” and acoustic ballads,… a torrential, cinematic drawing-back of the proverbial curtain, full of rich vocals and intricately-wrought instrumentals….a breathless joyride…, Klark showcases diversity and talent to their fullest, all the while maintaining unique and wholly original sounds.
