PREMIERE: Larkin Poe Sings the “Bleach Blonde Bottle Blues”
The rootsy pop duo bring their recent single to life in a very Nashville way.
Since forming in 2010, Larkin Poe have racked up quite a bit of cred inside of country circles and out, finding themselves opening for Keith Urban and Elvis Costello, and even taking the stage alongside Lucinda Williams and Randy Newman to honor the legacy of the late Tom Petty. The sister duo of Rebecca and Megan Lovell are four albums deep now with their latest, Venom & Faith, slated for a November release.
After sharing the early single “Bleach Blonde Bottle Blues,” the Lovells are offering up the full Nashville experience with a video for the track that’s located unmistakably in the American South. With Megan on lap steel guitar and Rebecca on a more conventional six-string, the duo gives new life to a track which they claim wasn’t even conceived until they were well into the recording process for Venom & Faith:
“[‘Bleach Blonde Bottle Blues’] was so late in coming into creation that it almost didn’t make it onto the record! It was such a fun lyrical jigsaw to piece together: this rhythmic picture of a bombastic, larger-than-life woman.”
Of the video, they explain their choice of a local Nashville shoot: “We wanted to invoke the feel of a gritty American South with kudzu, chain link fences, and attitude.”
Venom & Faith is out November 9 on Tricki-Woo Records.
