Larkin Poe is one hell of a force to be reckoned with from Atlanta, GA. Sisters Megan and Rebecca Lovell create a powerhouse of a sound with their enchanting vocals and swinging rock guitars. Megan on her signature lap steel slide and vocals, and Rebecca on her iconic Fender Jazzmaster – not unlike that of frequent tour mate Elvis Costello – and lead vocals. The sonic trip they put you into is one that you can only get in the south. These girls are quite the incredibly talented. “We all want the big sparks…” and that’s what you get with Larkin Poe. They electrify any room they are in.
You will not be able to stop yourself from moving to the music. Transcending into a shared experience that is unlike any other. The girls released their full-length debut album, KIN, after multiple EP releases. And KIN is just as impressive as their previous work. From the opening track, “Jailbreak” to real grooving songs like “Jesse”, “Sugar High”, and the protest of “Don’t”, this album is perfect for anyone.
Larkin Poe have recently been busy in LA recording in the studio on their highly-anticipated follow up album RESKINNED. I, for one, cannot wait for that to come out. If you happen to be living in any of these cities (scroll down to the tour section), I HIGHLY recommend you go to the show. It will be one you remember for a lifetime. I had the chance to see them back on St. Patrick’s Day 2015, when they were supporting Elvis Costello. Seriously one of the best night’s of my life. Not only did I get to meet Elvis, who by the way is a very generous and kind man. But I got to meet Larkin Poe as well. The girls are also very very kind and spent quite a bit of time ensuring each of the fans got a chance for a picture and autograph. My autographed vinyl copy of KIN is one of my most prized possessions. They really are one of the most rocking new acts that are sure to take over the world in no time. Be sure to check them out!
