Arlo Parks - December 2020

Singer and songwriter Arlo Parks, from London, is our December Artist To Watch.
We’ve mostly been playing “Black Dog” which is from her forthcoming album, Collapsed In Sunbeams, out in January.

From her “About” page: Arlo Parks is a singer-songwriter from London. In her words she spent most of school feeling like that black kid who couldn't dance for s*#t, listening to too much emo music and crushing on some girl in her Spanish class. Her songs are confessional and tender, mainly inspired by Portishead and Earl Sweatshirt.
