the Bristol-based 24-year-old singer-songwriter’s smoky vocals paint an evocative picture of lost love, of longing, of the melancholic beauty of just living against misty synths, pounding drums and delicate guitars, akin to the textures of daughter or London grammar.

Production-wise, pulsing synths (think: The xx) provide an atmospheric yet sleek backdrop. Under the guidance of her mentor, Rough Trade Records co-owner Jeannette Lee, Parker teamed up with the Grammy Award-winning Jimmy Hogarth to produce the album, with David Wrench (The xx’s ‘I See You’, FKA twigs, Caribou, Floating Points) on mixing duties. Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa and Polar Bear’s Seb Rochford also contributed drums.
