Let a mischievous bull loose in a china shop, Out the way I'm coming through Stylee and you have the sound of The Sheratons, Raving And Drooling is kickass exhilarating, an overdose of B12 injections, and despite my bones saying differently I feel like 17 again and upfront at one of their gigs .
Describing themselves as an indie rock band with frontman & Guitarist Kane Bulleyment, Emma Liu on drums, Finley Ryan on Guitar and Alex Creasy on Bass, this four piece from Leeds UK are deservedly gaining attention with support from local and national radio stations including Steve Lamacq BBC Radio 6 & BBC Introducing to name just a few. This young band with an average age of 20 caught the attention of Producers at Sugar House and haven't looked back since.
So how did the band form and where did the name come from?
" The name actually comes from a make of guitar used by Noel Gallagher, explained Finley . While we're not really into labels when it comes to genre, Oasis were always an influence in the earlier years and a band me and Kane really enjoyed listening too. Seeing as we both grew up together and both had a passion for music it was inevitable we'd end up doing something at some point. We connected with other musicians in Leeds and that's where we picked up Emma and Alex "
It was while listening to their track "These Kids" with their youthful and exuberant sound that reminded me of a similar vibe to The Undertones, and what a band they were?
There's also a third and must listen too worthy track "Part Of a Picture" The Sheratons can do no wrong, great songs with equally great hooky jangly guitar riffs, I can not get enough and I'm already chomping at the bit to get my hands on the yet to be recorded E.P or album. So what have the band got in store after Lockdown ? Hopefully plenty of live gigs and festivals including Bingley Weekender, playing alongside bands such as The Libertines, Primal Scream & Peter Hook to name just a few and to just keep making a name for themselves while doing what they love to do. I have no doubt 2021 will see The Sheratons gain further success and a whole new heap of fans ...in fact I'm just about to head back into that china shop?
