Eos New Artist: Arlo

10 April 2018
If you’re a fan of Eos Alt Buzz, Campus or BSP Hot, you’ve no doubt heard Homecoming by our Eos New Artist for April, Arlo. No less a luminary than Sir Elton John has praised Arlo as a new British talent before playing Homecoming on his Beats 1 radio show.

Homecoming may be confused as an EDM song or even a pop ballad. However, on second take, you begin to appreciate the distinct balance that Homecoming offers. Arlo’s soft voice is a perfect match to the underlying beats of the song, a combo that makes you feel all sorts of feelings. Homecoming is a raw plea for his lover to come back home.

Arlo has explained the track’s inspiration: “It's me admitting the truth to myself and promising myself to get better. It's me saying come home, we love you, we won't judge you. No one will ever love you more than your family and friends, so why not surround yourself around them?”.

And if you can’t get enough of his soulful music, check out Settle. It’s an ambient, indie-pop track, perfect for your heartbreak. Arlo maintains emotional integrity while reflecting on our desire for love and the consequences of being denied the love we think we deserve.

Settle is about doing everything in your power to be loved or wanted. It’s full of desperation and hopelessness. It’s my most vulnerable moment on record. We all want to be loved by somebody one day. This is real heartbreak filled with real rejection, something I think most people can relate to.
