Larkin Poe, fronted by sisters Rebecca Lovell and Megan Lovell, will issue a new EP, An Acoustic Companion, on October 5 via their own Tricki-Woo Records. The Georgia-born, Nashville based rockers also shared the preview track “Bad Spell (acoustic).”

The aptly named An Acoustic Companion contains stripped-down reworkings of four fan favorites.

“In our world, almost all of our songs start out ‘acoustic,’” Rebeccca noted, “with quiet beginnings at the kitchen table on an acoustic guitar. In recording ‘An Acoustic Companion’ we really enjoyed stripping a handful of our songs back down to their roots and we hope folks will enjoy getting an earful of these songs as they originally came into being.”

Megan detailed the acoustic evolution of “Bad Spell,” appearing on Larkin Poe’s 2022 album, Blood Harmony.

“From the jump, ‘Bad Spell’ was intended to be a big, bad, swaggy rock song,” she said, “but we’ve found that there’s nothing more creatively freeing than challenging and burning down one’s own preconceived notions. We did just that in re-envisioning the arrangement for ‘Bad Spell’ and letting it bloom into new life.”
