The Sherlocks – Last Night

The Sherlocks_RingMasterReview

Last year saw The Sherlocks release a pair of magnetically catchy and accomplished singles, two very well-received proposals waking up another flock of eager ears to their presence. Hoping to continue that success, the UK quartet is set to release new track Last Night, another single which has feet and hips as involved as ears and enjoyment.

The Sherlocks Last NIght art_RingMasterReviewHailing from Sheffield, the band came about after the Davidson brothers, Josh (guitar) and Andy (bass), moved in next door to the grandparents of another set of siblings, Kiaran (vocals/guitar) and Brandon Crook (drums). A bond over football and music alongside mutual inspiration taken from the likes of Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles, Libertines, Oasis, and The Jam amongst many, led to the creation of The Sherlocks late 2010. Previous singles and the First Bite Of The Apple EP have all marked the band out for attention , as too a potent live presence which has seen them share stages with the likes of The Enemy, JAMES, Simple Minds, Scouting For Girls, Reverend and The Makers, Buzzcocks, The Twang, CAST, The Beat and Starsailor amongst many.

Escapade and Heart of Gold helped push the band into keener spotlights in 2015; two tenaciously infectious and enterprising singles now matched in potency by Last Night. The song is arguably less imposing and dramatic with its virulence and energy compared to its predecessors, but straight away a swinging and inescapable catchiness is offered by rhythms and the lively gait of voice and melodies. The rumble of bass is especially enticing in that initial bait too, matched by the firm beats and a jangle of chords and hooks eager to get their claws into the psyche.

A subsequent sonic shimmer adds to the pull of the song whilst its contagious chorus is temptation only leading to listener involvement. Though for personal tastes not quite matching Escapade and Heart of Gold in impact, Last Night still only leaves pleasure in its wake and a reminder that The Sherlocks are becoming one of the bright lights of the British indie/rock scene.

Last Night is released March 4th @ https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/last-night-single/id1076703980?i=1076703984

The Sherlocks – Heart of Gold

The Sherlocks _RingMaster Review

Still looking barely old enough to take driving lessons, UK rockers The Sherlocks follow up their previous acclaimed single of earlier this year, Escapade, with another sure-fire attention grabber in the virulent shape of Heart of Gold. The band’s new single is a romp which continues spinning around ears and thoughts long after departure, a contagion reinforcing the growing notion that the Sheffield band is one of Britain’s most exciting emerging indie bands.

Consisting of two sets of brothers; Josh (guitar) and Andy Davidson (bass) uniting with Kiaran (vocals/guitar) and Brandon Crook (drums) late 2010, The Sherlocks have played shows at over 500 national venues these past three or so years, supporting the likes of Simple Minds, Scouting For Girls, Reverend & The Makers, The Buzzcocks, Starsailor, and The Enemy along the way, and earned great plaudits at festivals such as this year’s Isle of Wight event. Recent singles it is fair to say has pushed attention on the band to new levels, a success sure to be emulated again by Heart of Gold.

It opens on a smoky twang of sound and crisp beats, their brief jab the spark to a canter of jangly guitar and sultry guitar enterprise driven by the inescapably infectious lure and swing of bass and drums beats. Vocally Kiaran, backed strongly by the band, leads the dynamic croon adding further catchiness to proceedings in a seriously ear pleasing chorus and the great lead into it.

Band inspirations range from Arctic Monkeys and The Beatles to artists such as Libertines, Oasis, and The Jam, and fair to say there is a good scent of a couple of those in a familiar air across the mightily engaging Heart of Gold, but once again it is a spicing adding to a recipe ultimately distinct to and rousing from The Sherlocks.

To be honest there is the feeling the band has still to find its totally unique sound and voice, but with songs like this the wait can only be pleasurable.

Heart of Gold is out now @ http://thesherlocksmusic.co.uk/our-store/
