Larkin Poe: New Single – ‘Back Down South’

GRAMMY® Award-nominated sister duo Larkin Poe have shared their new single, ‘Back Down South’. The track also features fellow Nashville rocker Tyler Bryant and is the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming album, SELF MADE MAN.

“Roots American music is the language of our souls,” explain the duo. “We take pride in being part of a new generation of music-makers who are building upon the foundations that were laid by countless musical pioneers across the American south.”

SELF MADE MAN arrives Friday, June 12th via the band’s own Tricki-Woo Records; pre-orders are available now, with all pre-orders joined by instant grat downloads of ‘Back Down South’ and the album’s previously released singles, ‘Keep Diggin”, ‘Holy Ghost Fire’ and ‘She’s A Self Made Man’.


SELF MADE MANsees 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.

SELF MADE MAN – which follows 2018’s chart-topping, GRAMMY® Award-nominated fourth studio album, VENOM & FAITH – was self-produced by Larkin Poe, like its predecessor, with “our good buddy and engineer” Roger Alan Nichols at his Nashville studio, Bell Tone Recording. From the thunderous power of the album-opening ‘She’s A Self Made Man’, through the nostalgic ‘Tears of Blue to Gold’ and fierce Chicago blues of ‘Scorpion’, to the front porch jubilation of ‘Easy Street’, the album is ambitious in both its eclectic, energetic sound and its resolutely welcoming mission, its universal lyrical approach fueled by tradition, invention, and Larkin Poe’s remarkable ability to touch the hearts and souls of their fellow humans worldwide.

“This is, in a lot of ways, is the first lyrically uplifting record we’ve made,” Megan Lowell says. “People can go through terrible things. People can weather immeasurable sorrow and hard times, and yet we can still come out on the other side, pull ourselves together, and thrive. This record reflects some of the joy and positivity that we ourselves feel and appreciate.”

‘She’s A Self Made Man’ first arrived last 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.”‘She’s A Self Made Man’ “kicks all kinds of ass”, raved Classic Rock. “If delta blues had a baby with punk, and raised it on beefy rock ‘n’ roll, it might have turned out like this. Tune in, get involved…”
