Explore Tokyo With Arlo Parks- For Trippin Magazine
Arlo Parks had quite the year in 2021. Having released her debut album, Collapsed in Sunbeams, to critical acclaim, the poet and singer became one of the youngest winners of the Mercury Prize and was later nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy's. It was a stratospheric rise for the then 20-year-old, who was praised by artists like Lorde and Ghetts, and touted as the voice of a generation.
The artist is no stranger to travel, and has previously said that some of her most vivid memories are of family road trips from London to the south of France in the summers. However, she'd never been to Tokyo until her tour this year. The journey has been life-changing, and it's documented here in this Trippin on Tour video.
