‘The End of the Earth’ by Sheffield’s The Sherlocks is a blistering indie pop anthem with an indelible melody and a satisfying swagger. It combines a lyrical intelligence – a self-deprecating sense of humour – and a stadium-filling rock’n’roll attitude with scything guitars and a pounding, insistent rhythm.
It is really quite a joy – full-throated indie rock that struts and preens with intent.
The accompanying performance video enhances the enigmatic presence of the band:

The Sherlocks are brothers Kiaran Crook, (lead vocals, guitar), Brandon Crook (drums) Alex Proctor (guitar) and Trent Jackson, (bass).
With more music and some huge headline shows and festivals scheduled to be played during the English summer, including The Boof at Copeland Stadium at Whitehaven in August, at which The Sherlocks will headline alongside other featured acts such as Kyle Falconer, The Snuts, and The Clockworks, they are set to ignite the return of the live music scene in the UK this year.
The Sherlocks are also making an appearance at Kendal Calling, sharing the stage with an amazing line up including Blossoms, Australia’s own DMA’s, Richard Ashcroft, Supergrass, Stereophonics, The Streets, The Slow Readers Club and many, many more. The Sherlocks are also set to perform at Y-Not festival in Derbyshire in July, a sold-out Tramlines Festival at Hillsborough Park in Sheffield, also in July, among numerous other dates to be announced soon.
