Listen Up: Sky Larkin

Leeds trio, Sky Larkin is priming to bring their fresh, jangly pop stateside, with appearances at SXSW as well as releasing their new LP The Golden Spike in the US in April. Considering their sound, they done well to enlist John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Death Cab) to produced the album, the previews I’ve heard thus far show a lot of promise and Sky Larkin should find many in fan in the Sleater Kinney, Letters To Cleo, Sleeper bunch. Lead singer Katie Harkin’s vocals harken many of the same qualities of the great front women before her which makes for an inviting atmosphere when supported by the clash of soaring guitar and heavy drum assault. Their “Keep Sakes” is a tumbling good time… as is “Beeline”
