Music: Black Dog

As the world emerges from quarantine, musicians are taking stock of the strange, solitary year that just passed. "Black Dog" is an introspective track from one such up-and-coming artist, Arlo Parks:

The song comes from Parks's debut album, Collapsed in Sunbeams, and it's a straightforward-but-moving account of caring for someone with depression.  While that premise could have easily felt contrived, the neo-folk rhythms and insistent vocals give "Black Dog" the requisite emotional authenticity to, as the kids say, "hit hard."
