Arlo Parks is an indie singer/songwriter out of London, England, and today I came across her single “Black Dog“, a song that I feel like needed to be shared with as many people as possible and not just because it is a song about fighting mental health issues.
Following on from the release of Arlo’s “Eugene” earlier in 2020, this latest bitter sweet single additionally touches on the feeling of helplessness that comes along with watching a loved one suffer.
Speaking on the release of the single, Arlo wants people who are struggling to feel less isolated and start a conversation surrounding the prevalence of mental health issues in today’s world.
Nothing much else to say other than Arlo’s “Black Dog” is a beautiful song. Lyrically and visually, and even though the tone of the single and essence touches on a condition that effects a lot of people personally, Arlo has managed to showcase a subject matter with a touch of beauty.
I am definitely looking forward to discovering more about who Arlo Parks is as an artist, and I hope you are too.
