Rising Manchester four-piece Larkins release their new track ‘Make You Better’ – the first taste of their second EP due early 2020.


An exciting reputation is already being formed – their arena-scale blend of anthemic, synth-laden alt-pop reverberating with a growing number of kids with each subsequent release. Their two offerings for 2019 – the ‘TV Dream’ EP and the ‘Not Enough Love’ single have already amassed 5M streams and counting.

Now Larkins complete the year by sharing the new track ‘Make You Better’ on Good Soldier Records. Taking a more contemplative, minimalist production style from Dan Nigo (Sky Ferreira, Lewis Capaldi) to their earlier huge anthem-laden releases, it highlights an emotive, searchingly introspective vocal performance from singer Josh Noble that will continue the natural intrigue swirling around him right now.

Speaking on the track, Josh states: It’s a song about waiting for the summertime. I think when you’re growing up you don’t realise how important your grandparents are and how benevolent they seem. Losing them was tough but it’s even harder when you still have so much more to say. Hopefully I got this song right, it’s our most personal release to date.”

Originally from Glossop in Derbyshire before moving to Manchester, Josh Noble and Dom Want (guitar/synth) first started making music together at school, broadening their sound with the addition of Henry Beach (bass/synth) and Joe Gaskell (drums) to begin to craft music that’s huge, layered and mixing the kind of natural melody and tempo that will conjure relevant comparisons to the likes of Klaxons and The 1975.
