Larkin Poe To Share An Acoustic Companion Ahead Of UK Tour

The GRAMMY®-nominated multi-instrumentalist sister duo Larkin Poe are on a high following the reaction to their album Blood Harmony. Achieving their strongest Official UK Chart positions to date – #3 on Americana, #5 on Independent Albums,#10 on both Album Sales and Album Downloads – it also set them on course for their biggest UK shows to date. The sisters, Rebecca and Megan Lovell, made a big impression as guests to Guns N’ Roses at London’s BST Hyde Park in June, and will return to these shores next month for a major headline tour that culminates with a prestigious London show at Camden’s  Roundhouse.

The duo have now shared a raw new acoustic version of the fan favourite Bad Spell. The track is the first to be taken from their new EP An Acoustic Companion, which drops on 5th October. The EP consists of stripped-back acoustic arrangements of three key songs that originally featured on the Blood Harmony album, as well as a new version of Stubborn Love from their debut record Kin.

Watch the official video for the acoustic version of Bad Spell below:

Rebecca says: “In our world, almost all of our songs start out acoustic, with quiet beginnings at the kitchen table on an acoustic guitar. In recording An Acoustic Companion we really enjoyed stripping a handful of our songs back down to their roots and we hope folks will enjoy getting an earful of these songs as they originally came into being.”

Slide Queen Megan adds: “From the jump, Bad Spell was intended to be a big, bad, swaggy rock song, but we’ve found that there’s nothing more creatively freeing than challenging and burning down one’s own preconceived notions. We did just that in re-envisioning the arrangement for Bad Spell and letting it bloom into new life.”
