Now Watching: Arlo Parks – 'Sophie'

Monday, November 11, 2019

19-year-old Arlo Parks continues her takeover with her latest track 'Sophie'. Not only is the talented London-based artist a singer-songwriter, but she's also producer and poet as well — her poetry skills are something that you can hear in her poignant and narrative-like lyricism. 'Sophie' is also the title of her second EP, which is due for release on November 29th.

'Sophie' is a personal yet relatable track about feeling overwhelmed and anxious. On 'Sophie', she said it's about "crumbling under expectations and feeling helpless, but with a persistent, quiet sense of hope underpinning it." The track features relatable and expressive lyrics such as, "I'm still denying that I'm anxious as fuck / And I'm lacking in trust and I think my art sucks / I look inside my head with disgust."

Arlo Parks has also shared picturesque and remarkable visuals that amplify the emotions behind her words. The video was produced, directed and edited by Molly Burdette.
