Little is known about the 24 year-old artist ARLO. However, stepping into the limelight for the first time with debut track ‘Ivory’ – it’s clear that we have a fresh new talent on our hands.
A songwriter and vocalist who cites influences from current pop giants Adele and Kanye West to 80’s pop heroes Terence Trent D’Arby and Tears For Fears. ARLO displays a natural knack for story-telling with a wise head on his young shoulders, his narrative is delivered by his distinctive vocal all wrapped up in uplifting pop rhythms and triumphant percussion.
“Ivory is about the feeling of constantly being let down and disappointed. It’s me promising myself that I won’t be heartbroken any more – “ you won’t find my heart at home anymore”.
‘Ivory’ is the first of a series of equally enthralling songs to come from this newcomer across the summer and if this intro track is anything to go by, come the end of 2017, ARLO will be our newest alt-pop star to watch.
