‘TONIGHT WITH ARLO PARKS!’
To celebrate the release of her debut album, Collapsed In Sunbeams, Arlo Parks and Amazon Music have teamed up to showcase a ‘variety hour special’ on Amazon Music, where she will not only play some of the tracks from the record, but will also invite some pretty special guests from the likes of Dave Okumu and Glass Animals to attend, perform and collaborate with. Where we can no longer attend live events ourselves, event organisers and collaborators are doing their best efforts to bring the live aspect directly to our living room.
In hopes to spread a bit of light to a situation that is already all to familiar to us, the show will be there to give fans and avid consumers a personal invitation to Parks’ musical world.
“Music and performance are by their very nature entrancing and transportative, and we wanted to create a moment, or series of moments, that perhaps you can get lost in. Artists often have to fit into a format; this time, we wanted to build a format around the artist instead.”
– Toby L, Transgressive co-founder and label to Arlo Parks

From the plethora of artists, Giggs, Skepta, Stormzy, Dave and Ghetts, with mystical melancholy and lyrical anguish, the genre of Grime has blown up the UK music scene.
