Larkin Poe rip a rock shaped hole through this song, ably assisted by Tyler Bryant on lead guitar. It’s something of an homage to the origins of rock and roll and the influence that Southern musicians had – Little Richard gets a big nod early on.
The duo explained why they wanted to make this musical statement, saying “We take pride in being part of a new generation of music-makers who are building upon the foundations that were laid by countless musical pioneers across the American south.”
‘Back Down South‘ is from Larkin Poe’s latest album ‘Self Made Man‘ which will be released on June 12th.
