The Sherlocks today release their new single Was It Really Worth It? and, what can I say, it damn well is worth a listen. Naming The Jam, The Clash, and Arctic Monkeys as their influences, The Sherlocks deliver another another upbeat brit pop jam.
It’s basically about the battle of pleasing someone who can’t be pleased or in other words it’s summed up in the last verse ‘fighting a battle that can’t be won’. It is definitely an anthem of ours and it’s pretty much been a favourite of mine since I wrote it years ago.
After a sold out UK Tour last September, The Sherlocks have added 3 more dates onto their forthcoming UK & Ireland tour which begins this February. New dates added include ABC in Glasgow, Heaven in London and Church in Leeds (see full dates at bottom), tickets for these go on sale this Friday 27th January & can be bought here http://www.thesherlocksmusic.
The band were formed in Sheffield when brothers Josh (guitar) and Andy (bass) Davidson moved in next door to brothers Kiaran (vocals/guitar) and Brandon (drums) Crook’s grandparents. Bonding over their shared taste in British giants like the Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles, Libertines, Oasis and The Jam. The Sherlocks have been steadily building a solid live following and were the first unsigned band since Arctic Monkeys to sell out their local venue the Sheffield Leadmill.
