Hailing from Glossop, a small town just outside of Manchester, Larkins are making waves in the English live music scene. ‘Are We Having Any Fun Yet’ follows on from their EP, Hit and Run. The production is so crisp and clean and perfectly juxtaposed by the heavy synth.
And they’re just getting started. On their sound, frontman Josh Noble says, “You can look to groups like The 1975 as paving the way for bands.”
“But we use them as the benchmark to beat.”
Larkins are also working to forge a reputation for climate change awareness, gender equality and ethical practices in the music industry. Love that.
Pending the end of the global pandemic.
Larkins combines those effortless vocals and an easy beat with synth-laden, alt-pop lyricism to create something that is just *chef’s kiss*. It sounds like the perfect track to have all your deepest thoughts to, but in a really pleasant way.
