Arlo Parks Makes a Fantastic Debut with Poetic Single Cola
At 18, Arlo Parks has managed to swing it out of the field with her debut “Cola”, a testament to the heights poetic lyricism can take a song when paired with a voice as soulful as hers. Arlo says “‘Cola’ is a reminder that betrayal is inevitable when it comes to pretty people that think flowers fix everything.” Her voice is the main event of the song, lush and soft, melancholic and uplifting all at once; it’s a treat to hear it express bitterness over a cheating lover in the same breath as sorrow over what once was. She tempers the sharpness of her words with a certain tenderness in her voice, and it’s a given that you’ll be listening over and over again.
