Why do we like this?

I love finding talent from London. Arlo Parks is the young South Londoner representing a soulful pop voice in the anxious and depression-ridden Generation Z.

Taken from her debut EP, “Super Sad Generation” is a heart-felt, coming-of-age tune written by the poet and singer at the tender age of eighteen acknowledging the ache and destruction behind Gen Z’s fiercely independent lineup: creatives, hustlers, adventurers. It’s a slow-moving track about fast and saturated minds — an endearing realisation of the false hedonism masked in getting wasted and talking about nothing. Parks says of the track:

When I look at my generation I see a kaleidoscope of dejection, passion and anxiety - there’s this strange mix of sadness and intimacy that saturates generation Z. Super Sad Generation was inspired by the time my friends and I sat on the green at sunset, half wine drunk and ugly crying for no reason in particular. We talked for hours about ghosts, disappointing our parents and depression. Everyone I loved seemed so angry and sick and aggressively alive, I’ll never forget that evening. On the bus ride home I wrote the poem that would eventually become Super Sad Generation - a reflection on how a lot of things break and a lot of people get hurt during adolescence.

Listen to the EP, Super Sad Generation on SoundCloud.
