The Sherlocks were formed in Sheffield when brothers Josh (guitar) and Andy (bass) Davidson moved in next door to brothers Kiaran (vocals/guitar) and Brandon (drums) Crook’s grandparents.
Bonding over their mutual love of football and music, the brothers formed a friendship, owing especially to their shared taste in British giants like the Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles, Libertines, Oasis and The Jam. After several jamming sessions that took place in the dying days of 2010, The Sherlocks were born.
Having supported bands like Simple Minds, Reverend & The Makers, The Buzzcocks and The Enemy – at the end of 2015/start of 2016 The Sherlocks saw a meteroric rise in popularity whilst supporting the Libertines on the Northern leg of their UK arena tour.
Their debut single 'Live for the Moment' which you can listen to above, peaked at number 91 in Official UK Singles Chart, while their second single, 'Escapade', hit the charts at number 45. So far the band have sold out over 300 venues (and counting) nationwide – many of which during their recent UK headline tour in February.
Their Latest single 'Last Night' which you can listen to below, was released on 4th March, we spoke to The Sherlocks ahead of the release, you can read the full interview here.
“Hard work is what we are all about” says drummer, Brandon,
“We love playing live, we will play anywhere we can. We just want to get our music out there and see the reaction of the fans”.
Since then the lads have enjoyed a really successful SXSW and are now gearing up to play Dot To Dot Festival in May, before a homecoming show in JUne at The Leadmill in Sheffield.
