Leather jacket swagger from the Lovell sisters. This fierce blues rock barnburner from Larkin Poe conjures arena strutting 70’s rockers and the first wave of British blues in the 60’s.  ‘Bad Spell’ is the first single from their new album ‘Blood Harmony’ to be released in Fall of 2022.  Rebecca and Megan Lovell have gained YouTube notoriety with their gentle covers of classic songs on acoustic guitar and lapsteel. In this video, the lapsteel is slung across Megan’s shoulders and blazes above Rebecca’s fuzzed-out riffs and soulful vocals. Those fans used to seeing the sisters seated closely side by side blending their voices will be jolted awake by this fiery performance.

When steering by your own stars, you never quite know where you’re going to wind up,” says Larkin Poe. “Our true north is unique to us, and in following our true north without compromise, we have been out freewheeling this world on the ride of our lives. And it still feels like just the beginning. Blood Harmony is a creative step we are proud to have taken together as sisters. We grew these songs in a sweet part of our hearts and we hope they bring beauty.

Larkin Poe starts a world tour this month in Europe that extends through the rest of the year including dates in the U.S. opening for Willie Nelson.
