Arlo Parks Shimmers With New Track ‘Weightless’

Singer, songwriter, and BRIT's Best New Artist for 2021 Arlo Parks has hit the charts by storm once again with their latest single release ‘Weightless’. 

Setting soft vocals to a chilled indie backdrop, ‘Weightless’ is a relaxed indie track that blankets its listeners within its beaming rays of serotonin.

Following the emotional journey of experiencing unrequited and unresponsive love, each lyric of the single is enriched with hope to spark self-love and respect.

“Re-reading our texts from the / strawberry days / Just give me a sign if you want me”

Sirening bold strength and confidence in repeating “I don’t wanna wait for you” throughout the chorus, Arlo Parks’ power lies in their ability to be vulnerable and emotional through their lyrics. Each effort to remind themselves this, despite being intermittently followed with the self-deprecating “But I need you, so I won’t go”, signifies the track’s power in building a story of a mundane relationship that is laced with self-doubt and a hunger for validation and recognition from a partner. As Parks questions the value of love and dedication provided by their partner, the soft tempo and upbeat tone recharge the single’s soulful and intimate message of healing and self-recollection.

Although Arlo Parks has an exciting lineup of performances across North America and Europe throughout 2023, ‘Weightless’ has sparked excitement for their upcoming second album.
