Taken from debut EP 'Bad Timing', out May 31st
Newly-signed to iconic indie label Domino, Arlo Day has unveiled "This Love", the second track from her upcoming debut EP Bad Timing, due out 31 May.
Having announced the record with its lead single and emotive video "Bad Timing" last month, "This Love" is another window into the thrilling world of Arlo Day, a.k.a. Alice Barlow, a young songwriter and guitarist from South-East London whose unique ear for melody, haunting vocals and rumbling guitar tones have gained a quiet reputation as one of the capital’s best kept secrets.
Describing the meaning behind "This Love", Barlow said, “I wrote this song at a turbulent time in my life, it's about an unhealthy kind of love with someone you know isn’t good for you, and trying to protect yourself from pain even though it may be inevitable.”
The previously released "Bad Timing" was an instant hit with critics, receiving the coveted Next Wave slot from Jack Saunders at BBC Radio 1, as well as spins from Absolute's Danielle Perry. Dork featured Arlo Day in "First On", while Dazed included "Bad Timing" in their "Best of the Month" picks, and Music Week named her an artist "On The Radar".
The Bad Timing EP is available to pre-order now, below.
Arlo Day will celebrate the record’s release with a special EP launch show at Bermondsey Social Club on 6 June with a full band. Tickets are available HERE.
