Larkins have been tipped by the Manchester Evening News as Manchester's next arena band . On Saturday 25th February 2017 they play their biggest headline show to date at Gorilla.
Harbouring a sleek pop sensibility over an indie-rock swagger, the four-piece are a breath of fresh air within a scene in danger of stagnating, thanks to their effortless amalgamation of indie-pop, funk and blues. It’s for that reason that despite their reasonably short space of time together, Larkins have already garnered a solid reputation with fans and press alike; a steady stream of releases earning the band lofty praise from online press and important early radio exposure from both BBC Introducing and Radio X, amongst others.
Ending 2016 supporting John Cooper Clarke at the O2 Ritz Manchester and O2 Forum Kentish Town as well as being part of the line-up for The Slow Readers Club huge sell-out Manchester show (The Ritz again), Larkins have already been tipped by many as the next huge emerging artist from Manchester.
Indie Rock n'Roll is what Larkins do and they intend to provide us with the big bold anthems of the future - Jo Good, XFM
With very special guests:
Their sound has a positive vibe with powerful vocals, funky guitars and energetic drums containing elements of funk and pop.
