For Fans of The Small Faces — THE SHERLOCKS New Single Reviewed

The British indie / alternative band from Sheffield THE SHERLOCKS are currently touring the UK (tonight at Waterfront Studio, Norwich and tomorrow night at Picturedome, Northampton.) They were recently hand-selected by The Libertines to support their arena tour.

The band consists of two sets of brothers: Kiaran Crook (on lead vocals, with guitar) Brandon Crook (on drums) Josh Davidson (on guitar) and Andy Davidson (on bass.)

The Sherlocks – clear hearted and optimistic…

The band will be travelling on to Austin Texas in March to play at the SXSW festival 2016. We wish them good luck … You can keep up-to-date with their exploits on their web site.

In the meantime, we have been listening to their new single Last Night due out 4TH MARCH —

There is a tumble of drums to start things off , then a licorice guitar that bends and crooks its back — like a teenage groover on the dance floor.

The melody is not sophisticated but wonderfully clear hearted and optimistic.

The voice is relaxing and we especially love the long coo-coo dove notes.

And running right through all this is a spark of guitar-work moved by the joy of rhythm.

It reminds us of the tinkling frankness of The Housemartins crossed with the grin and attitude of The Enemy.
