Sheffield’s latest indie band The Sherlocks are celebrating chart success with fans ‘going crazy’ for debut single Live For The Moment.
The track, out this week, has been at number five in the Official UK iTunes Top 40 Alternative Chart.
That put them above other top 20 tracks by Coldplay, The Vamps, Johnny Marr and even the city’s own Arctic Monkeys.
Singer Kiaran Crook, aged 18, brother Brandon, 21, on drums, Josh Davidson, 21, on guitar and brother Andy, 16, on bass, were already being talked about as Sheffield’s next big thing.
It follows a sold out UK tour earlier this year and suporting bands including The Enemy, Reverend and the Makers, Simple Minds, Scouting For Girls, The Pet Shop Boys, The Twangs and The Farm.
The Sherlocks, signed by the same management as The View, Babyshambles, Pete Doherty and The Libertines, were mobbed for signed copies of Live For The Moment at a sold out launch gig at Sheffield’s Rockin’ Chair.
They will play Manchester’s Kraak, on November 1, and The Adelphi Club in Hull, On Friday, November 7.
Brandon said: “It’s going crazy this week.
“We can’t believe the reaction we’ve had for an unsigned band.
“We want to thank fans for all their support and we want to do another Sheffield show to finish what has been an amazing year with a big bang.”
