Larkin Poe – the GRAMMY® Award-nominated duo of Georgia-bred, Nashville-based multi-instrumentalist sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell – share “Southern Comfort,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. “Southern Comfort” marks the latest single from Larkin Poe’s upcoming sixth studio album, Blood Harmony, arriving via their own Tricki-Woo Records this Friday, November 11. Pre-orders are available now, including limited edition magenta-colored vinyl, CD, cassette, and more.

“Growing up in Tennessee and Georgia shaped my sister and myself in so many beautiful ways,” says Rebecca Lovell. “Now, as an adult, I feel grateful to reflect on that childhood and to call Nashville home. I loved writing this song, and getting to share southern hospitality, southern comfort, with all the sweet souls we encounter on our travels around the world, feels empowering.”

The emotionally charged “Strike Gold” – along with its official music video, streaming now at YouTube – received instant acclaim from such outlets as Americana-UK, which wrote, “Sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell bring all their dynamism and character to this pulsing song… It’s a powerful, electrifying blend of southern rock and blues, with pulsing percussion that really makes you want to move. The highlight here is Megan’s searing, sliding lap steel that builds and releases tension so effectively.” “‘Strike Gold’ is a soulful blues with some sassy lap steel flourishes and a chorus designed for live singalongs,” agreed Classic Rock, “which is well-timed as Larkin Poe have also announced their biggest US tour to date.

Blood Harmony affirms Larkin Poe as an essential force in shaping the identity of Southern rock ‘n’ roll, breathing new energy into the genre with both forward-thinking perspective and a decidedly feminine strength. In a departure from the self-contained approach of past albums like 2020’s Self Made Man – praised by American Songwriter as “pumped up for arena-sized consumption without compromising any of its stripped-down command and intensity” – Larkin Poe co-produced the new album alongside Texas-bred musician Tyler Bryant (also Rebecca’s husband). With Megan handling harmony vocals, lap steel, and resonator guitar and Rebecca on guitar and keys, Larkin Poe also enlisted members of their longtime live band, including drummer Kevin McGowan and bassist Tarka Layman. Mainly recorded at Rebecca and Tyler’s home studio, the result is an electrifying new work that fully harnesses the fiery vitality they’ve shown in touring across the globe, imbuing their songs with equal parts soulful sensitivity and thrilling ferocity. From the feverish guitar work of “Bad Spell” to the soul-stirring “Southern Comfort” and smoldering title track, Blood Harmony reveals a band in complete touch with their formidable intuition, their storytelling fortified with a blues-heavy sound that hits right in the heart.  

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.”
