British singer-songwriter Arlo Parks shares a new track about her impurities with its visual component. With her bright white smile and low-cut red hair, she dazzles like the star she sings about radiating like. The setting of the music video shows her at-home with family and friends, enjoying quality time.
About the song, the high-pitched voiced, singer says, “This is a song about community… being around people who make you feel like your inner ugliness and failures and mistakes don’t matter, who lift you up and make you laugh, who make you feel good and clean.”
She adds, “With this visualiser I really wanted to convey this atmospheric oscillation between solitude and companionship – I wanted to show how being around your people really does feel like coming home. When I was writing this song I had been thinking about Gus Van Sant a lot and how he captures people in all their fragility and beauty and ugliness – Jak was instrumental in creating/protecting that sense of softness.”
The track is from her forthcoming album ‘My Soft Machine’ out at the end of May. Check out the Jak Payne direction below.
