CHEWING ON BEST NEW ARTISTS: ARLO PARKS

We continue our single-serving rollout of our Best New Artist overview with the brilliant Arlo Parks.

The British singer/songwriter’s Collapsed in Sunbeams (Transgressive) confirmed that she was a major arrival; AIM and Mercury wins and Ivor noms solemnized it. A modern poet with an adventurous alternative/R&B sensibility, Parks casts an unbreakable spell. Opening spots are planned for Clairo and Billie Eilish in 2022; a BNA nod would honor the Grammys’ affinity for left-field dreamweavers without raising eyebrows.

See our entire BNA list here.
