Wildcard (week 22):
The Lathums – Lucky Bean

Early in March of this year, The Lathums put Lucky Bean forward as the ‘focus track’ of their sophomore album From Nothing To A Little Bit More. Ten weeks into the promo campaign, it is now out as an official single. A great choice, which sounds like the perfect cross of The Proclaimers, The Smiths and The Boo Radleys. The upbeat, summer-y track pairs jangling guitars, plenty of horns and even a harmonica. It’s early ‘90s all over again!

Lucky Bean looks back on a romance of the Wigan band’s singer and songwriter Alex Moore. “It’s a song about love,” he explains, “speaking of a doomed relationship at a time when I thought we’d be together forever and have kids. At the time, I used to call that person my lucky bean.” The relationship soured between writing and recording, but at least it resulted in one of the best pop moments of the year so far. A bittersweet skiffle-pop track that’s ready to warm the hearts of festival attendees.

The Lathums’ new single Lucky Bean is this week’s Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. That means it’ll be featured prominently at the top of the blog for a full seven days.
