The Sherlocks Friday 4th October at Banquet Records, 6:00pm On the day that their new album is released, The Sherlocks play in the shop. Under Your Sky will mark the second full length album from the anthemic indie-rockers and follows on from their acclaimed 2017 debut full length Live For The Moment. They were last in Kingston upstairs at New Slang but now they're back to play an intimate set in the shop. By the tail end of 2018, The Sherlocks begged to be allowed back into the studio. In stark contrast to the sessions for their debut album, recorded in late-night sessions at the cut-off, rural Rockfields in Wales, this time they opted to record at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios with The Coral’s James Skelly at the desk for the four weeks running up to Christmas, knocking off at six o’clock Monday to Friday to head into town for snooker, beer and a debrief on the day’s work. The result was a tighter, brighter, ultra-modern alt-rock record, benefiting from Skelly’s knack for focusing a killer chorus, less indebted to indie rockers of old and smattered with stylistic swerves into new wave, ‘80s textures and all-out feedback freakouts. It’s as Killers, Cars, High Flying Birds and Two Door Cinema Club as it is Catfish. A real 21st?Century guitar rock record. In-store Grade B. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Under Your Sky from us. All albums + Tickets are for collection in the shop on the day of the event. CD | LP
