Sky Larkin – Motto



Sky Larkin - MottoNewly expanded Leeds band Sky Larkin have unveiled the first track to be taken from their forthcoming third album.

Motto is the first new material from the band following the departure of bassist Doug Adams and the addition of Nile Marr and Sam Pryor on guitar and bass respectively. Once again produced by long-time collaborator John Goodmanson (Sleater Kinney, Los Campesinos!) in Seattle, Motto sees the band carrying on their abrasive yet ultra melodic style with a suitably beefed up sound backing singer Katie Harkins’ distinctive vocals.

The track is taken from the as-yet-untitled follow up to 2010’s Kaleide, which is expected this autumn through Wichita.

Sky Larkin are currently on tour across the UK with Dutch Uncles before joining up with Marnie Stern for yet more shows throughout June, culminating in a summer of festival appearances. Details for all dates can be found below:
