Today, Larkin Poe have shared their take on the Phil Collins classic ‘In The Air Tonight.’ The mysterious companion video for the song heralds the arrival of Kindred Spirits, Larkin Poe’s first-ever covers album and second full-length of 2020, arriving November 20th via their own Tricki-Woo Records. The album was self-produced by Larkin Poe from their home studio. Pre-orders are available now and can be found here.
“We feel like every human on earth has probably sung or hummed or air drummed ‘In The Air Tonight’ at least once in their lives,” say Larkin Poe. “There’s a strange, hallow’s eve energy lurking beneath the lyric of this song that has captured countless imaginations, ours included. We wanted to delve deeper into this more sinister vibe by stripping the song back further with only lap steel, vocals, stomps, and claps.”
“When we decided to release this cover today, we were excited because it meant a spooky, moody music video would be a perfect fit,” Larkin Poe add. “We love the darker undertones of the recording and — with the help of some vibey found footage — created the perfect Halloween flavoured video.” The new song and video are delivered in the most timely fashion for these relatives of Edgar Allan Poe.
In the spirit of Halloween, Megan and Rebecca are going to share a Facebook video at 1pm CT / 6pm GMT this Saturday, October 31st in which they’ll perform the theme songs of their costumes – Megan will be a character from Star Trek and Rebecca will be WWE’s The Undertaker.
