Arlo Parks has followed up her Mercury Prize winning debut album Collapsed In Sunbeams today.

My Soft Machine was recorded with producers including the esteemed Paul Epworth, whom Parks described as a ‘wizard’:

He has this childlike spirit that I’ve always really loved and he brought that to ‘Blades’. I wanted to make something that I can dance to, finally, because I feel like my songs don’t really have that quality in general. So, I took inspiration from bands like ESG, artists like Kaytranada, and a lot of the kind of 70s Zambian psychedelic rock that I love.

Parks will be playing instore gigs at Rough Trade East in London next week, and is due back in Europe by September for a 9-date tour.
