I can’t even begin to articulate how long I’ve been waiting for this to happen – for visceral, yet deftly vulnerable Leodensian
trio quartet Sky Larkin to return. And as such to a degree, there’s no statement they could’ve by this point released that would’ve feasibly lived up to the highly animated anticipation fizzling from my every pore and tszujing up my every particle, unless it were to brim with the animalistic intent so many of their songs have previously. And Motto, I’m absolutely thrilled and commensurately relieved to reveal, is no exception: “If I had a motto I would tell you first/ I’ve never suffered from a lack of sensation; just a terrible thirst/ If I had a motto I would spare you now/ From the catchphrase of the cash cow” Katie Harkin seethes over serrated fretwork and thrashing rhythms, her tag lines hooky and impassioned as per. There was no PR; no elaborate launch, but instead an again enrapturing burst of graphic vivacity replete with breathlessly chirpy harmonies and breakneck instrumentation. Breathtaking.
