Arlo Parks' sophomore album My Soft Machine arrives tomorrow, but she has one more visual gift to drop before the album is officially out. Today she shared the single "Devotion" and a music video directed by Ali Raymond and Joel Barney.
“'Devotion' to me is a song about feeling so in love it’s almost like being ripped apart, there’s an intensity, a wildness and a tenderness," Parks said in a statement. "It draws from the bands that made me fall in love with music from Deftones to Yo La Tengo to Smashing Pumpkins to My Bloody Valentine.”
Regarding the video, Parks noted that it “had to feel sweaty and nostalgic and loose. The surreal bluish hue, the sense of feral joy in the performance, the blur and the band—I wanted to pay homage to ’90s rock music and the notion of loving so hard it almost destroys you.”
