Sky Larkin will release their third album, Motto on 16th September via Wichita Recordings.

The Yorkshire band will also release a new single, 'Loom' a week earlier on 9th September, listen to the track below. Motto is the follow-up to 2010's Kaleide.

"This song is about the presence after loss," explains Katie Harkin. "I knew that the inspiration for this song meant that it would the saddest on the record for me, so I consciously attempted a fake-out with myself. I wanted it to be our Enola Gay, pop on the surface with a darkness that the casual listener might not pick up on. For me that's one of the funniest things about songs: they can be powerful without being self-evident."
