About The Sherlocks
The barflies of Bolton upon Dearne’s working men’s clubs saw it first. Before long the floundering Sheffield rock scene saw it too, then BBC Radio 6 Music, then the massed, churning crowds of Reading & Leeds. Now the whole world is catching on to the wildfire thrill of The Sherlocks’ live shows, every single one a flailing frenzy of youthful delirium, a new generation discovering the adrenalising rush of rock’n’roll.
FUR combine 50s and alt-indie melodies with themes of love and heartbreak to create their unique form of dreamy pop. Murray (vocals) & Harry (guitar) began writing together and quickly realised their shared love for creating and performing. After the two moved to Brighton, UK, Tav (bass) & Flynn (drums) were quickly added to the band, finalising the formation of FUR.
Buzz quickly grew around the band after releasing a series of singles in early 2018 and with a boastful collection of festival appearances and shows behind them, FUR have quickly become one of the most exciting upcoming bands around.
Breaking hard-rock down to its simplest, most fundamental form, Sœur are a brutal, soulful assault on the senses. Bound together and battle-hardened by an experience & appreciation of the fringes of British rock music, Anya Pulver, Tina Maynard & James Collins have already found their incendiary live shows selling out in dive bars and clubs across their native South West. With vocal lines that tangle & intertwine, riffs so substantial they’ve got their own post code, and a beat - provided by former Maybeshewill drummer James Collins - that ties everything down with industrial power, this is a sound of colossal proportions.
