First video from Larkin Poe

Larkin Poe, the sister duo formed when The Lovell Sisters disbanded earlier this year, have just released Summer, their debut EP project, along with a music video for the song Long Hard Fall.

Their music is more pop than bluegrass, a direction that The Lovell Sisters had been taking this past two years while they were touring together. But Larkin Poe still heavily features Rebecca Lovell on acoustic guitar and mandolin, and Megan on resonator guitar. Rebecca’s voice is remarkably strong, and she shows great promise in the rough and tumble, highly competitive pop music world.

Here’s a look at the video, which includes heavy doses of the bluegrass sound on which they cut their musical teeth.

You can listen to the 9 tracks on Summer in full at the Larkin Poe web site.

We were sorry to learn that the Lovells were parting ways (Jessica left to attend college and get married), but wish Rebecca and Megan best of luck in their future endeavors.
