Arlo Parks has released her latest single, ‘Black Dog’, a track she describes as being about “the feeling of helplessness that comes along with watching a loved one suffer”, adding, “it’s supposed to make people who are struggling feel less isolated and start a conversation surrounding the prevalence of mental health issues in today’s world.“. Premiering as Annie Mac’s hottest record, its out on Transgressive Records now
Characterised by these brushes of guitar and echoey piano, Arlo’s voice has a beautiful pureness about it, and as the lyrics weigh heavy on her she coo’s ‘sometimes it seems like you won’t survive this’. It’s genuinely moving, affecting pop.
