The Sherlocks release new track ‘Under Your Sky’, taken from forthcoming second album of the same name, which will be released this October 4th on Infectious Music. The Sherlocks premiered their new track ‘Under Your Sky’ last night via Steve Lamacq’s 6 Music radio show.
The Sherlocks recently played energetic secret sets at both Reading and Leeds Festivals on the Festival Republic stage performing songs from both their albums which were excellently received by fans & media alike. They’ve also announced that they’ll be doing some intimate UK in-store acoustic gigs as well as a headline October/November UK tour and will headline Neighbourhood festival in Manchester this month alongside Miles Kane.
‘Under Your Sky’ is the fourth track to be shared from their new album after singles ‘Waiting’, lead single ‘NYC (Sing It Loud)’ which featured actor & friend of the band, Thomas Turgoose in the video (This Is England/Game Of Thrones) and ‘Magic Man’. The Sherlocks have also been performing intimate gigs for fan competition winners throughout the UK.
With their 2017debut album ‘Live For The Moment’, Sheffield quartet The Sherlocks established themselves as key contenders in a new wave of British bands keeping alt-rock and indie vital for a new generation of fans. The album fired into the charts at #6 as the band inspired devotion wherever they went, from shows with Liam Gallagher, an international array of festival dates to rapturously received shows in Japan.
While ‘Live For The Moment’remains a scintillating insight into the hedonism and heartbreak of youth, ‘Under Your Sky’ finds frontman Kiaran Crook writing songs which bridge the exuberance of youth with the reflection and maturity of young adulthood.
With the album’s heartbroken, epic finale‘Under Your Sky’, Kiaran took inspiration for his characters and situations from home.
The songs are largely born from experiences, often specific to circumstance but largely universal in emotion. The driving ‘I Want It All’ reminisces over a gloriously stormy festival weekend in Wales, along with other memorable moments Kiaran has spent with a special someone. Then the Springsteen-tinged ‘Time To Go’ celebrates the more casual romantic encounter.
Whether despairing over the ambitions lost to people doing McJobs on ‘Dreams’ or dissecting the various stages of relationships on ‘Waiting’ or in the album’s heartbroken, epic finale and title track, Kiaran also found inspiration from the stories and circumstances of people in his hometown. Naturally it’s a collection that leans towards the melancholy, but vitally there’s hope for better times ahead too.
