Tell Me About Harri Larkin Beach City Album
I (Harri) recorded the album in 2018 before coming to Sheffield and meeting the guys. The whole album is played on acoustic guitar because at the time I played as a solo musician. However in the studio I couldn’t resist writing parts for bass/ drums/ lead guitar and 3 part harmonies. Hearing it played back; I knew Harri Larkin needed to be a full band again. All the lyrical content of the album are little journal / diary entries from my formative years up until that point it was my life’s work so there’s a lot of heart and soul in there and a lot of teenage angst. For instance “Medicine”, “Roma”, “Sugar Rush” and “Far from the end” were written when I was 16 and 17
What Lies Ahead For The Band
What lies ahead ? Everything lies ahead. Music has been our oxygen since we all picked up our respective instruments as little kids, I think that really comes through in our live show. Personally I have been playing under the name Harri Larkin for nearly 12 years and if tramlines isn’t the definition of a big break what is? Finally we have something to hold onto we won’t be letting go! It’s the best feeling in the entire world. It was all worth it
