With their 2017 debut 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 number six as the band inspired devotion whether they went, from shows with Liam Gallagher to an international array of festival dates to rapturously received shows in Japan.

Now The Sherlocks enter a new chapter in their career with the news that their eagerly anticipated second album Under Your Sky will be released on October 4th on Infectious Music.

While Live For The Moment remains a scintillating insight into the hedonism and heartbreak of youth, Under Your Sky finds front man Kiaran Crook writing songs which bridge the exuberance of youth with the reflection and maturity of young adulthood.

That approach, worldly songs with one eye cast homeward, is perfectly demonstrated in the album’s lead single NYC (Sing It Loud ).

“It was the first proper American tour we’d done and I was blown away by the place,” he explains. “The other side was wishing certain people could be there to see it with me. When you know people are at home and you’re having such a good time, you think, ‘If you could see what I’m seeing. ‘ Even though I’m in New York, I’m still thinking about people at home who I wish could see New York who have never been and may never go.”

This time around, The Sherlocks, completed by Kiaran’s brother Brandon (drums) and the Davidson siblings Josh (guitar) and Andy (bass), opted for a more structured recording process that they had with their debut. They spent four weeks working Monday to Friday at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios, with The Coral’s James Skelly on production duties.

The result is tighter, brighter and ultra-modern, benefiting from Skelly’s knack for focusing on a killer chorus and smattered with stylistic swerves into new wave, ’80s textures and all-out feedback. It’s as much The Killers or The Cars as it is Catfish; a real 21st century rock record with stadiums in its sights.
