2021 was less than a month old and already we had one of the albums of 2021 from London-based musician and poet Arlo Parks. The album is a series of vignettes and intimate portraits surrounding her adolescence and the people that shaped it. It is rooted in storytelling and nostalgia. The album is an emotional rollercoaster of heartbreak, beautiful poetry, betrayal and hope, that has been inspired by Allen Ginsberg, Sylvia Plath, Jim Morrison and Fela Kuti. One listen and you will fall in love, like you did when you first heard Frank Ocean, King Krule or Lilly Allen.
