They say madness runs in the family. They say the same about creativity and passion. That's good news for Larkin Poe's sister duo Rebecca and Megan Lovell, the descendants of tortured artist and creative genius Edgar Allen Poe, who return to our shores for another headline run of live dates this July. The Atlanta-based sisters released their debut album ‘Kin’ last year, to a raft of press and radio attention, and have seen their UK following swell in the wake of a string of sold out live shows – shows that cementing their reputation for high-energy, joyous performances.
Hot on the heels of a tour in support of Elvis Costello, new single ‘Stubborn Love’ surfaces on 31 July too - a highlight from the debut album, and a song that really gets to the crux of Larkin Poe’s internal relationship, offering some insight into how they tick, both as people and artists. “Every time we fight in a hotel room / Stubborn love keeps pulling us on through.” they sing. It invites us to join them on their journey, be there for the good times and bad, and come out singing full volume at the end. The band comments;
“Having just wrapped up a 3-week tour with Elvis Costello in the UK, we are so excited to be launching straight into a Larkin Poe tour. We'll be hitting the road afresh and in support of our new single, "Stubborn Love"! All told, it'll be two months straight of touring... As sisters on the road, our bond is a strong as it's ever been and we feel that "Stubborn Love" is the perfect anthem for this tour!”
