The Sherlocks brought their fast paced indie rock to the Picturedrome in Northampton last week.

Fresh from supporting The Libertines at arenas across the UK, the Sheffield quartet have been out on their own headline tour.

While unsigned, the band have won praise across the airwaves, carved out an enviable fan base across the UK and on Friday played to a packed Picturedrome.

Northampton band The Barratts opened proceedings and were followed by Blaenavon.

The Sherlocks comprise of two sets of brothers, singer and guitarist Kiaran Crook and drummer Brandon Crook and guitarist Josh Davison and his brother, bassist Andy Davison.

Showing more than a nod to their peers such as The Enemy and Arctic Monkeys, there’s no bid to reinvent the wheel by The Sherlocks.

Highlights of their set included Live For The Moment and Escapade, both which proved the band’s ability to craft an indie rock anthems with catchy choruses, while the rest of their set was raced through as if lives depended on it.

While not dissimilar from anything you’ll have seen or heard before, The Sherlocks are doing their up-most at helping keep the indie rock scene alive in 2016.
