Arlo Parks 'Creep' by Tom Dream
Arlo Parks shares her cover of Radiohead's Creep, directed by Tom Dream as part of his upcoming short film Shy Radicals.
The music video itself has an understated, meditative atmosphere, focused purely on the performance of the track. DoP Jack Maddison takes advantage of the plentiful natural light and abundant space in the room, choosing to move the camera in a slow and deliberate manner, to let the concept unfold organically.
The short film, made with the support of the BFI Doc Society and Black Dog Films, is a portrait of Hamja Ahsan and the story behind his remarkable book and satirical manifesto Shy Radicals, which calls for all shy, quiet, and introverted people to unify and overthrow 'extrovert-supremacy'.
Arlo's performance is an effort to continue standing in solidarity with others facing challenges with introversion. "Creep is a simultaneously delicate and brutal exploration of inner turmoil and human relationships," she says. "This song has acted as a refuge for me, during times of self-reflection and low mood, for many years and Radiohead as a band has deeply influenced my music."
