Bolton-upon-Dearne’s The Sherlocks were certainly a slow-burn overnight sensation. Ascending swiftly from stints in working men’s clubs to rammed, buzzing and riotous gigs on the nearby Sheffield scene, they were embraced as the city’s next big guitar stars – the next-gen Arctic Monkeys, if you will - and the band set to launch the next wave of Sheffield alt-rock. Which they did: a series of self-released singles and EPs, beginning in 2012 and really kicking into gear with their Arctics-style signature anthem ‘Live For The Moment’ in 2014, spread the word like wildfire. Over two years of hard touring, The Sherlocks rose to two-thousand capacity venues across the north of England, caught the ear of Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio X and Soccer AM and signed to Infectious in October 2016. A smart signing: months before their 2017 debut album Live For The Moment hit Number Six in the UK they were already crowned as local heroes at the Sheffield Arena, supporting Kings Of Leon.
However, just like every other band, The Sherlocks’ plans for 2020 were scuppered by coronavirus.Completing an initial low-key UK tour in early March to support their 2019 second album Under Your Sky, their further planned tours of America and the Far East were forced to be scrapped. And yet while the rest of the world went into hibernation during lockdown, the group got to work on their latest studio output. New single ‘World I Understand’ is the latest taster of those sessions; a celebratory rock anthem that heralds better days to come following the darkest of times.
Now The Sherlocks look to embark on a UK tour throughout February and March of 2022. Continuing their previous run of jaw-dropping live shows, the group will bring all the magnetism and swagger they are known-for to Chalk, Brighton this March!
