It comes as no surprise that London based singer, songwriter and musician Arlo Parks (aka Anaïs Oluwatoyin Estelle Marinho) has been tipped as one of the most exciting artists around by just about everyone who’s heard her incredibly poetic and melodious brand of indie/bedroom pop. Since debuting with the stunning ‘Cola’ back in 2018, the rising artist has gone onto share two brilliant EPs last year in the form of ‘Super Sad Generation’ and ‘Sophie’ and was longlisted by the BBC for this year’s Sound of… poll. More recently, Parks has continued to impress with a handful of gorgeous numbers in the form of ‘Eugene’, ‘Black Dog’ and a haunting cover of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’.
For COLORS, Arlo Parks delivers a hopeful and uplifting performance of latest single ‘Hurt’ which premiered on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World. A song about “the possibility of healing from pain and the temporary nature of suffering”, ‘Hurt’ features Parks’ dreamy and comforting tones as they wash over a spirited beat dripping with glorious guitar lines. Check out the fabulous rendition of ‘Hurt’ up top and be sure to keep an eye out for more from Arlo Parks who’s currently working on her highly-anticipated debut full length album.
