Live Review

The Sherlocks

Scala, London

September 7 2016

Fast rising indie favourites The Sherlocks hit the stage at Scala in King's Cross tonight to perform at their biggest London headline show to date (and a sold out one at that) - an incredible feat for a still relatively unknown band.

Despite still being an unsigned band, The Sherlocks have not let that dent their energetically delivered live show that was a polished set of fan favourites such as 'Live For The Moment', 'Last Night' and 'Heart Of Gold', as well as a few new tracks - all greeted by the 'Sherlocks Army' with cheers and accompanying singalongs which has become a staple factor in the Barnsley band's live outings.

With the adoring crowd jumping, dancing and shouting back every word, frontman Kieran Crook told of how humbling it was for him and his band mates to have sold out a show of this scale in London. It's something they probably will accomplish again, as when they draw the night to a close with 'Chasing Shadows', the crowd explodes into a frenzy of moshing as bodies, beer cans and anything else to hand, are let loose.

With a weaponry of catchy, no-frills indie-rock songs and a loyal and growing fanbase, The Sherlocks can only go from strength to strength, it won't be long before they graduate to bigger stages, bigger crowds, and that ever important record deal.
