Carsten2X Pearls

Shankill raised artist Carsten2X shares his sun-kissed, perfectionist anthem ‘Pearls’.

Speaking on the track he says, “When I was writing Pearls I was kinda stressing out about a lot of shit. I had all these songs but I’m
there being a perfectionist (not to sound egotistical but just being picky with my own beats, and the type
of music I’m making) and I was overthinking how to make my own sound. I actually do grind my teeth
(no cap in my raps). And just venting about being an over thinker.”
