Episode 9 of This Is Not Happening lands on another massively hyped album from the last year: Arlo Parks: Collapsed In Sunbeams. From being crowned BBC's 'Sound of 2020' and labelled 'the voice of a generation', the pressure on a debut album hasn't been this heavy in a long time. We dissect it to see it lived up to the expectation, with Nolan at the helm.
In the second part of the show, we come back to picking our favourite new music since the turn of the year, with a really intriguing set of four great tracks We chose:
Nolan: Tunnelvisions - Mirrored Identities
David: Nubiyan Twist feat. K.O.G. - If I Know
Guy: Virginia Wing - St Francis' Fountain
Joey: Sofia Kourtesis - La Perla
March's album of the month and all our various music discussions from the past decade or more can be found on our blog at www.thisisnothappening.net, which runs alongside the podcast choices and much, much more. So check them out so to see what we 're talking about and if something lands with you, we'd love to hear what you think.
Episode #10 will be digging into The Weather Station's latest album, Ignorance. Another female singer songwriter, but a departure from the world of Arlo Parks, for sure. Coming to you in late April.
