Review: 13 February, Roundhouse, London.
‘Through-out the set both sisters ensure to keep the crowd amused, being known for their on stage banter with each other and reminiscing of the earlier days in their career – be it their iconic mullet hair styles or harder and darker times between the two twins which caused a riff in their career but ultimately lead to them writing some of their biggest hits.’
“The Sherlocks, made up of Dearne, Kiaran, Brandon and Andy, are a band of the people, singing songs to make the audience happy, their aim, to take everyone away from the current climate we live in. With melodies and choruses that one can listen to over and over again.”
Sleeptalking – All Hope Is Lost For Now
“Sleeptalking are a five piece band from Bristol, who on January 17th released their debut single late ‘All Hope Is Lost For Now’, a big, shouty, punky, great song. It sounds similar to the stooges, and an amazing vocal that doesn’t sound dissimilar to that of Steve Tyler.”
