Arlo – Homecoming
HOT NEW ARTIST ALERT! London based artist, ARLO, recently released his new single, Homecoming. His sound immediately reminded me of Imagine Dragons, with big, orchestral drums and gospel-pop inspired vocals. I’d go ahead and categorize the genre as alt-pop. The single is meant to showcase ARLO’s vocals for what they are, harmonizing beautifully with the instrumentation. The entire narrative is super dynamic and professionally done. I can imaging this song playing on pop radio stations across the world.
Sir Elton John has given a nod to the new talent, playing Arlo’s singles on his Beats 1 radio show. The single is perfect for driving in the car, coasting at work, deep water fishing, family game nights, pregames, parties, working out, inspiration, and any epic Instagram video montage.
Arlo, has written records with Diplo. An alumni from the infamous Goldsmith University, Arlo, moved to Harlem, New York to work on his songwriting and vocal craft. Since then, ARLO has worked with Rich Cooper (Josef Salvat), Sacha Skarbek (Adele, Lana Del Rey, & Miley Cyrus), and David Kosten (Bat for Lashes, Everything Everything, Marina & The Diamonds).
Arlo sent a quote along about the song…
“Homecoming is admission in its purest form. It’s me admitting the truth to myself and promising myself to get better. It’s me saying come home , we love you, we won’t judge you. no one will ever love you more than your family and friends. So why not surround yourself around them. “
ARLO will be making his debut, live headline performance at the Waiting Room in London on March 28th. That’s a big deal. I’d tell you to get tickets if you’re in London, but the show is already sold out. If you can sneak in, you’ll be witnessing the start of greatness!
