Arlo Parks returns with another song off her new album ‘My Soft Machine’ in the form of ‘Blades’. She advertised her new release by buying a billboard she proclaimed on Radio One with Clara Amfo. Arlo is known for a blend of indie and poetic lyrics. (she started her career as a poet) Her latest release however is a little bit of a left turn.
‘Blades‘ has a driving beat and a chorus that allows Arlo’s voice to really shine. It’s a fun song, with verses that have a sense of threat to them. There is an undercurrent of sadness and of relationships being cut off within the track even through the bubbly production of the legend Paul Epworth.
