If we were making a list of buzziest, most essential new talents to come out of the UK right now, there’s every chance we’d start it with Arlo Parks, inside a notebook on which we’d written Arlo Parks on the cover, and where every page was filled with the words ‘Arlo’ and ‘Parks’. That’s why, when we decided to reset our 2020 with a bunch of our favourite, freshest, most exciting acts, she was one of the very first names we called upon.
With a string of jaw-droppingly good tracks already on the books, and big stuff to come, she’s the second amazing cover act we’re announcing this month. You can read all about our first, Cavetown, right here.
Want to know what else is in this issue? We’ll be revealing the rest of the covers over the next few hours, so follow us on Twitter and/or Instagram to ‘keep up’. What we can tell you, is you’ll also find new interviews with Everything Everything, The Magic Gang, Aluna and The Lemon Twigs, be introduced to Baby Queen, JP Saxe, Curtis Waters, Alec Wigdahl and Mysie, and get the Dork verdict on new albums from Declan McKenna, The Killers, Bright Eyes and ‘more’.
