Larkins - Hit And Run [EP]
“Manchester heroes making atmospheric indie pop for the masses.” – NME
“A sound located between Tears For Fears, The Wombats and The 1975.” – Sunday Times Culture
“Larkins make massive tunes with huge choruses.” – Dork
“Manchester’s next arena act.” – Manchester Evening News
“Anthemic choruses and heartfelt lyricisms.” – The Line of Best Fit
Now Larkins take their next leap forward by sharing the new single ‘Hit and Run’. Already a fan favourite having independently released an early version of it, the song is also a highlight of their live shows. Now possessing a swaggering new confidence, ‘Hit and Run’ is a bigger, global-facing prospect. Its immediately insistent vocal hook captures your attention, their synths and guitars duel is punchier than ever, and the thunderous groove amplifies its undeniable energy.
This new version was produced by Mark Crew and Dan Priddy (Bastille’s ‘Pompeii’, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man), with additional production from regular Larkins collaboration Chris Zane (Friendly Fires, Jack Antonoff). It was mixed by the multiple Grammy winner Andrew Dawson, best known for his influential contributions to Kanye West’s discography.
Larkins’ frontman Josh Noble commented, “I remember hearing someone say that you have to approach older songs as the band you are now, not as the band you were when you wrote them. So to release a reworked version of ‘Hit & Run’ feels so good.”
