I clearly remember this autumn day last year when I first heard "Cola", Arlo's debut single. My mind was blown, but I didn't quite realise back then what a star she's about to become.
Blending her specifically silky vocals, plus gentle spoken hip hop (or articulated sonnet, as she calls it), all topped up with r&b elements. Arlo explains the meaning behind:
"Sophie" is a song about crumbling under expectations and feeling helpless, but with a persistent, quiet sense of hope underpinning it.
This is the title track of her forthcoming Sophie EP.
