Arlo Parks has shared her stunningly gorgeous cover of Radiohead’s most beloved hit ‘Creep’.
The video was directed by Tom Dream as part of his upcoming short film Shy Radicals. The film was made with the support of the BFI Doc Society as well as the Ridley Scott Creative Group, with the picture offering up a portrait of Hamja Ahsan and the story behind his remarkable book and satirical manifesto.
‘Creep’ is the latest offering from the 19-year-old prodigy Parks, who shared the visuals for her last single ‘Black Dog’ in May. That track was “supposed to make people who are struggling feel less isolated and start a conversation surrounding the prevalence of mental health issues in today’s world.”
The meaning behind ‘Creep’ carries on from where ‘Black Dog’ left off and she has also discussed how the track is an intricate perspective on mental health as well as how Radiohead have influenced her career over the years.
She said: “Creep is a simultaneously delicate and brutal exploration of inner turmoil and human relationships. This song has acted as a refuge for me, during times of self-reflection and low mood, for many years and Radiohead as a band has deeply influenced my music.”
