Members of a South Yorkshire band are in the midst of the biggest fortnight of their musical careers – and are loving every minute.

Fresh from their biggest headline gig to date –a sellout show at Sheffield’s O2 Academy2 – The Sherlocks have two top support slots lined up.

The Bolton Upon Dearne quartet are supporting Reverend and The Makers and The Enemy at Doncaster Dome tonight, before a slot supporting Twisted Wheel at The Leadmill in Sheffield next Friday.

Drummer Brandon Crook, a law student at Sheffield Hallam University, said: “It’s brilliant, really exciting. It’s good to get out there,”

And he said the band were thrilled with the feedback from their 02 gig.

The 20-year-old said: “My phone was going non-stop after the 02 gig. I just left it on charge for a day because it was buzzing so much. It’s good, because it’s what it’s all about.

The band – Brandon, his brother Kiaran, aged 18, on vocals and guitar, lead guitarist Josh Davidson, 20, and his brother Andy, 16, on bass – also have a four-track EP called A First Bite of the Apple available on iTunes which is proving popular.

Brandon said: “It’s just indie rock and roll. It’s only £3 or £4 so people are downloading it to check us out.”
