Leeds' Sky Larkin are a breezy indie band with pretty cracking songs that bristle with potential. The singers strong, swooping voice is similar to that lassie out of Blood Red Shoes but I prefer their songs, more tripped out with a guitar sound that reminds me of Crowsdell or The Spinanes. Phil suggests Velocity Girl & Jale too. Basically they sound a little like an old Sub Pop indie band from the early 90's but with a wide eyed British lassie on vocals, a little spiky, slightly dreamy but with a dynamic urgency that belies their home made feel. Erm...it sounds like i'm reviewing the forthcoming album doesn't it? Well, you'll have to wait for that one. 'Fossil, I' is their first for Wichita, a label who've signed some stormers recently and is 7" only on White vinyl. Packaging looks like the last Plaid album or summat, well designers republic!
