Arlo Parks is a young 18 years old singer-songwriter, poet and musician from South West London. We introduced her with the debut song “Cola”; now sheannounced the release of her first EP. Super Sad Generation is out on April 5th via Beatnik. She shared a new track titled “Romantic Garbage“. Talking about the meaning behind the song, which like all her material started out as a poem before she added her own beats, melody and production, Arlo Parks explains,
“This is an old song I wrote and produced in my bedroom when I was 16 and completely overwhelmed by an intense crush. It’s about being both terrified of the vulnerability that comes with romantic love and so completely infatuated you start writing sappy, stupid poetry and want to be around them all the time”.
