Motto is the third album by Leeds trio Sky Larkin on Wichita Recordings. Recorded with long-term collaborator, producer John Goodmanson (Girls, Sleater Kinney, Los Campesinos!) in Seattle, Motto showcases Sky Larkin’s unshakable ability to conjure immediately satisfying, vibrant indie rock. The album was written for the most part whilst Sky Larkin singer and guitarist Katie Harkin was on the road as a touring member of Wild Beasts and captures a typically varied set of themes as its inspiration.

Listen up." - 8/10, NME
