sky larkin: matador


sky lark (sklärk)
n. An Old World lark (Alauda arvensis) having brownish plumage and noted for its singing while in flight.

intr.v sky larked, sky larking, sky larks
- To play actively and boisterously; frolic.

Sky Larkin's name fits them well. Katie Harkin's voice soars and twists powerfully, pushing every line, every chorus to breaking point whilst remaining tender enough to pick up the pieces. It kinda toes the line in a wonderfully, breathy way that leaves me hanging on for something more. Fierce impetus is provided by her bandmates Doug and Nestor. Boistrous and playful is their sound to a tee, a trip to Seattle has resulted in a fine album, The Golden Spike. Their debut single on Dance to the Radio, One of Two, was gloriously raw. Now everything is crisper than the cold snap.

Sky Larkin - Matador








After a listen or two, this song stands out. The opening guitar line has an assured air of quality. Close your eyes and you can easily imagine yourself in a festival crowd as the sun goes down. Equally good on chilly days spilling out of your kitchen stereo.

Album is out on Monday on Wichita. Pre-order it here or if you're in London, head down to Rough Trade East on the 11th to pick up a copy and watch Sky Larkin do their thing in-store.
