Acclaimed Indie-Rock Duo Larkin Poe Set To Release Brand New Album 'Blood Harmony'

Acclaimed indie-rock duo, Larkin Poe, sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell, are set to release their brand new album, 'Blood Harmony', November 11.

The title track to the band’s upcoming album depicts the Lovell sisters and their band mates getting ready to take the stage for a show. Lyrically, it’s a love song of sorts to music in general and the bonds between family members.

“‘Blood Harmony’ came together after Megan and our mom and I all read Ruth Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being, which is about the ways we perceive the passage of time,” says Rebecca Lovell. “There was just something about the sweetness of all three of us reading the same book, and then being able to talk about how it related to our love for each other and our love for music. Of all the songs I’ve ever written, I’m particularly proud of this one; I cannot wait to sing it loudly with all of our chosen family out on the road.”

“When steering by your own stars, you never quite know where you’re going to wind up,” said the band. “Our true north is unique to us, and in following our true north without compromise, we have been out freewheeling this world on the ride of our lives. And it still feels like just the beginning. Blood Harmony is a creative step we are proud to have taken together as sisters. We grew these songs in a sweet part of our hearts and we hope they bring beauty.”

The record was co-produced by the band alongside Texas-bred musician Tyler Bryant (also Rebecca’s husband). With Megan handling harmony vocals, lap steel, and resonator guitar and Rebecca on guitar and keys, Larkin Poe also enlisted members of their longtime live band, including drummer Kevin McGowan and bassist Tarka Layman. Mainly recorded at Rebecca and Tyler’s home studio, the result is an electrifying new work that fully harnesses the fiery vitality they’ve shown in touring across the globe, imbuing their songs with equal parts soulful sensitivity and thrilling ferocity. From the feverish guitar work of “Bad Spell” to the soul-stirring “Southern Comfort” and smouldering title track, Blood Harmony reveals a band in complete touch with their formidable intuition, their storytelling fortified with a blues-heavy sound that hits right in the heart.

The duo have a major North American tour planned for 2023, it will kick off in Asheville, North Carolina, January 20.

Rebecca & Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe are singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist sisters creating their own brand of Roots Rock 'n' Roll, gritty, soulful, and flavoured by their southern heritage. Originally from Atlanta and currently living in Nashville, they are descendants of tortured artist and creative genius Edgar Allan Poe.
