Arlo Parks, Phoebe Bridgers Combine On ‘Pegasus’

Plus, there's a beautiful video...

Arlo Parks combines with Phoebe Bridgers on new song ‘Pegasus’.

The song is one of the highlights on Arlo’s new album, the follow up to her extraordinary, Mercury winning debut. Out on May 26th, ‘My Soft Machine’ gets even more personal, with Arlo Parks focussing her lens on “life through my lens, through my body…”

She continues: “The mid 20s anxiety, the substance abuse of friends around me, the viscera of being in love for the first time, navigating PTSD and grief and self sabotage and joy, moving through worlds with wonder and sensitivity – what it’s like to be trapped in this particular body.”

The wonderful ‘Pegasus’ is out now, the music flitting between downbeat, almost spoken word pop – which puts us in mind of Everything But The Girl, curiously – and a slightly more raw, rock-edged template, like PIXIES at their more melodic.

Out now, backing vocals come from collaborator-du-jour Phoebe Bridgers, while Bedroom constructs the video.

Arlo comments…

“The desert landscape has always had a special place in my heart, the scorched land, the dust, the sense of absence. Films like Gerry, My Own Private Idaho and Paris, Texas all use the desert as its own character representing isolation, nostalgia and the journey to a place outside of yourself. Bedroom did an incredible job of meshing surreal dreamscapes with real intimacy to make one of my favourite music videos I’ve ever made.”
