Idolize Me by Arlo Sun

The habitant of a haunted apartment near Toronto, Canada, Erin Bolton has been performing the best part of a decade in the Toronto indie music scene. Erin has transitioned into Arlo Sun, the Gaelic form of Sun between two hills, which she describes as where her music is, in the middle of her spiritual spectrum.

This tune, Idolize Me, is a reflective, melancholy tune that encourages a burgeoning sense of self-discovery that has come back to reality. It’s a story, a narrative, and very poetic. Arlo Sun’s voice is front and center, as it should be. She is vocally powerful and intimate in her delivery. The rootsy guitar feels a little bit tweaked, just touching some lower end tone and feeling devilishly agitated. It’s a playful meandering that comes across as not dissimilar to Hawksley Workman or other Ontario troubadours.

This is beautiful, rich, and uncomplicated. It’s a guttural expression of deep longing and self-reflection. It’s simple, layered in passion, and obviously endearing to behold. Bravo.
