Interview with The Sherlocks

18th February 2018 | Music

It must be pretty good to be in The Sherlocks right now.

The four-piece – made-up of brothers Kiaran (lead vocals and guitar) and Brandon (drums) alongside Josh (guitar) and Andy (bass) – released their debut album “Live For The Moment” at the end of 2017, have supported The Libertines on tour and have recently announced a support slot for Liam Gallagher.

The real break-through moments for the band have come from their electric live sets where their chemistry and expert live playing brings the crowd alive - playing sold-out venues across the UK as well as highlight performances at the likes of Reading & Leeds Festival... The Sherlocks have put all fear to rest and prove that the indie-rock resurgence isn't too far away!

The album – released after a string of singles including ‘Will You Be There?’, ‘Chasing Shadows’ and ‘Was It Really Worth It?’, all of which have over 1M streams on Spotify – peaked at #6 on the UK Album Charts.

It’s becoming a meteoric rise to the top of the indie rock world, and it doesn’t seem to be fazing them at all.

James Gilmore interviewed lead singer Kiaran Crook about their debut album, supporting Liam Gallagher and their live shows.

New Music We Love: The Chainsmokers have something different, Trent Harmon is stunning and Samantha Harvey nails it

16th February 2018 | Music

What starting out looking like a sub-par New Music Friday turned into one with surprise gems – however, in a new single, The Chainsmokers make us doubt everything we thought we knew about them (and we don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing).

Featured Track: The Chainsmokers – You Owe Me

The Chainsmokers are, predominantly, an electronic music duo which tours with a drummer (his name’s Matt and he’s very cool). But, apparently not! In new single “You Owe Me”, off of their EP ‘Sick Boy… You Owe Me’, their sound is closer to Coldplay than Hardwell.

With artwork which is clearly inspired by Katy Perry’s Bon A Petit, the single is perhaps the most honest single from the duo since their single ‘Honest’. It’s a grower for sure, but continues to cement their position as one of the most exciting acts around.

Other Good Ones

Trent Harmon – You Got ‘Em All: Very few artists are able to produce music which is so honest and so crushing that it makes you feel like you’ve been punched in the gut… but you like it. That’s what Trent Harmon does in his brand new single on Big Machine Records, the start of a very fruitful career we’re sure.

Samantha Harvey – Please: Making the transition from YouTube star to genuine, fully-fledged pop star is a difficult one, but in her debut single, Samantha Harvey nails it with a pop banger which has all of the merits of a Hailee Steinfeld single.

Tayá – Skin (feat. Lotto Boyzz): Having made big moves with Yxng Bane collaboration ‘When Ur Sober’, this collaboration could finally be the single which pushes Tayá into the mainstream. A perfect mix of pop, R&B and hip-hop in…
