GRAMMY® Award-nominated sister duo Larkin Poe have announced today’s premiere of “Holy Ghost Fire,” the latest track from their new album, SELF MADE MAN. The track is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.
“Music is a raw power. In tough times, music can galvanize your heart and help you rise above – all you’ve got to do is sing,” says Rebecca Lowell. “’Holy Ghost Fire’ is our anthem dedicated to the healing energy of music.”
SELF MADE MAN arrives Friday, June 12, via the band’s own Tricki-Woo Records; pre-orders are available now, with all pre-orders joined by instant grat downloads of “Holy Ghost Fire” and the album’s acclaimed first single, “She’s A Self Made Man.” Relix premiered the video for “She’s A Self Made Man” earlier in the week.
SELF MADE MAN sees the multi-instrumentalist sister duo, comprised of the Atlanta-bred, Nashville-based Rebecca and Megan Lovell, pushing their music and message towards hitherto unexplored terrain, inspired by their epic world travels yet still powerfully rooted in the creative heritage of their beloved American South. Songs like the gothic gospel “Holy Ghost Fire” manifest a key aspect of the southern tradition, presenting a sense of celebration and renewal amid the common struggles of existence, offering a way to move through trying circumstances.
“She’s A Self Made Man“ arrived earlier this month and is available now at all DSPs and streaming services. With its playfully pointed gender twist, the track both gives the LP its title and serves as an anthem for Larkin Poe, kicking off the proceedings with a big riffed assertion of their current intent and amplified artistic power. An official companion video, directed by Robbie Klein (Florida Georgia Line, Justin Timberlake, Maren Morris), is streaming now via YouTube.
The premiere of “She’s A Self Made Man” was met by immediate critical acclaim, with American Songwriter writing, “Murky blues ooze off chunky riffs, delivering something ominous on ‘She’s a Self Made Man.’ It goes deep. It’s melodious and mucky. It’s a punch to the gut.” CLASH named the “biting, fantastically emphatic new single” as its “Track of the Day,” noting, “Its crunching guitar palette is augmented by flashes of sterling Americana, hearkening to their Nashville base.” Classic Rock declared, “’She’s A Self Made Man’ kicks all kinds of ass. If delta blues had a baby with punk, and raised it on beefy rock’n’roll, it might have turned out like this.”
