MANCHESTER band Larkins will perform their massive tunes with huge choruses as they take their latest tour to the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on April 23.

Sunday Times Culture magazine placed the Larkins’ sound between Tears For Fears, The Wombats and The 1975, while The Line of Best Fit praised their anthemic choruses and heartfelt lyricisms.

The band recently became the first Manchester band in 50 years to sell-out out their 2,600-capacity home-city Academy before releasing their debut album.

A spokesman said: “From The Smiths to The Stone Roses and Oasis, the Manchester music scene has made a huge impact on global music culture.

“Blending anthemic indie and synth-heavy alt-pop, Larkins are being tipped to follow in those legendary footsteps and elevate themselves towards arena status.”
