SKY LARKIN ‘LOOM’: “I CONSCIOUSLY ATTEMPTED A FAKE-OUT WITH MYSELF”

SKY LARKIN1Check out Sky Larkin’s splendid new video (directed by Ashley Connor), to accompany their charming new track ‘Loom’, off their album ‘Motto’, out September 9th via Wichita Recordings.


Singer Katie Harkin explains: “I knew that the inspiration for this song meant that it would the saddest on the record for me, so I consciously attempted a fake-out with myself.”

“I wanted it to be our Enola Gay, pop on the surface with a darkness that the casual listener might not pick up on. For me that’s one of the funniest things about songs: they can be powerful without being self-evident.”SKY LARKIN2“I’ve always wanted our records to be immediate at their most accessible, and at their most expansive, inhabitable, I really wanted to make something beautiful that wasn’t also permissive.”
