A keen poet, Parks has had an interest in language and writing from a young age, which shows in her much-celebrated lyrics.
She told Fword magazine about her writing style: “Lyrically I mainly write what I’ve lived and what the people around me have lived, their stories and personal experiences.
“Definitely for me lyrics come first because at heart I feel like poetry is my thing. When I’m writing a song, the lyrics will inspire the music and that’s what I prioritise when I write.”
Her debut EP Super Sad Generation was released in 2019, to great success on streaming platforms and her debut studio album, Collapsed in Sunbeams, was released in 2021.
Her most famous hits to date have been Cola and Black Dog.
