The Sherlocks’ recent singles have seen the band throw themselves headfirst into a sound that ups the ante in every possible way: hookier, edgier, full of attitude and just plain bigger than anything they’ve done before. And it’s paying off, with support including Jordan & Vick’s Tune of the Week at Radio 1 as well as picking up further airplay from Jack Saunders, while their live plans are also going from strength-to-strength. With strong ticket sales for their biggest UK headline tour to date this autumn, the band then announced their biggest European headline tour, which will see them hit another eleven countries.
Firmly on a roll, The Sherlocks fire forwards towards the August 4th release of their new album ‘People Like Me & You’ by sharing their new single ‘Remember All The Girls’. Listen HERE.
A song which perfectly captures The Sherlocks’ live energy, ‘Remember All The Girls’ emerges from its scene-setting introduction and erupts into a melody firecracker full of buzzsaw guitars and pulse-racing rhythms. Bringing an accomplished control to their livewire indie/alt-rock hybrid, its rapid pace nonetheless sees frontman Kiaran Crook in a reflective mood. Looking back to teenage years dominated by cliques, rivalry and trends, he now sees that things that were then all-consuming are now irrelevant.
Kiaran says, “Everybody seems to judge each other at that age. It’s only when you get older you realise ‘why did I care so much?’”
‘Remember All The Girls’ opens the ‘People Like Me & You’ album with a bang before The Sherlocks go harder with the record’s lead single ‘Sirens’. From there it doesn’t let up, taking into strident, arena-scale synth-rock, classic indie-pop albums, dancey beats and some welcome surprises throughout. It’s all united by the band’s commitment to raise the bar and, in the process, create a new peak moment in a discography that has already delivered two Top 10 albums.
‘People Like Me & You’ is available to pre-order / pre-save HERE. The band have just added a free bonus CD with exclusive tracks to all available album bundles.
