According to the sisters themselves, 2015 was a defining year of growth for Larkin Poe, an Atlanta-based roots rock 'n 'roll duo, comprised of Rebecca and Megan Lovell: "We feel lucky to have experienced a year of life-changing moments that shaped and crystallized our artistic direction. We're entering our mid-twenties; we're coming into our own. We've lost love, we've found love. We've lived loud, leaving little pieces of our hearts in every club we've played around the world - and we are really proud to have come out of 2015 with new songs that speak to that change."
This change they speak of is their second album "Reskinned", a re-release follow-up of the critically acclaimed, debut album 'Kin'. Voted as one of the top-ten albums released in 2014 by Huffington Post, Larkin Poe toured the world supporting the November 2014 release of 'Kin'. Rebecca states: As musicians, singers, songwriters, and performers, we learn something new with every show we play; last year we played hundreds of shows: from big festivals, to tiny radio stations; from backing Elvis Costello, to backing Conor Oberst. We've learned to stay on our toes and keep our artistic approach fresh. This perpetual innovation fueled a writing spurt that the sisters felt compelled to immediately record and share with their fans.
The sisters celebrate that unique genealogy, and their own eccentricities, with their new release on Restoration Hardware's label RH Music. Produced by Chris Seefried (Fitz and the Tantrums, Lana Del Rey) in Los Angeles, this fresh version of the original album 'Kin' includes new productions by Justin Warfield (She Wants Revenge, Nico Vega) and Wax LTD (Muse, Bon Iver, Miley Cyrus, Maroon 5) who produced the new single "Trouble In Mind". A nod to the sisters' southern heritage, Trouble In Mind features sassy, homegrown lyrics: "I'm a bad little angel, I fell from grace, a Georgia Peach gone bad, yeah, you know the taste.
