London based musician and poet Arlo Parks has been steadily climbing the ranks as an artist to watch since the release of her confessional debut single Cola. The track fizzed with original confessional lyrics mixed with a smooth funky groove and a dash of jazz for good measure. Essentially, this song is a stinging riposte to a former lover and delivered with Park’s laid back jazzy flow and alludes to her phase as a teenage goth.
Her follow-up EP Super Sad Generation is delicate, lo-fi and melancholic and cements the notation of her being an incredibly special artist, demonstrating soul and compassion beyond her years. Parks says that she made it to “pay tribute to all those kids that are in a lot of pain and confused as to why.”
The track Romantic Garbage has been heavily championed by Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1), making her the latest in an impressive line-up of high profile supporters of the young artist.
With her soft, acoustic pop emo, the pundits are predicting that 2020 is the year for Arlo to soar.
“The young Londoner’s confessional brand of pop is fast becoming the sound of emo 2.0”
