Recorded in Nashville earlier this year in between headline shows, festival dates such as Bonnaroo
, and a featured guest performer spot on Keith Urban’s Graffiti U
World Tour, Larkin Poe approached Venom & Faith
with fierce independence. From Rebecca’s powerful vocals on “Ain’t Gonna Cry
” to Megan’s sultry lap steel on “Good And Gone
,” the sisters weave their talents into the fabric of their experience and a picture of the American South. “Blue Ridge Mountains
” harkens to the sisters’ hometown, “drinking sweet tea every day” with stomping percussion and churning riffs.
Still, the sisters maintain an outlaw mindset in a traditional genre. Unbound by tawdry embellishments, Larkin Poe infuse pop sensibilities into their sound, blending old-school elements of rock and soul with drum samples, hip-hop production values, and resonant lyrics like “California king-sized dreams in a twin bed.” Venom & Faith redefines what it means to make emotionally resonant music while also maintaining boundary-pushing musicality.Venom & Faith will be released via Tricki-Woo Records on November 9, 2018.
