Watch: The Sherlocks unveil acoustic video for Chasing Shadows ahead of Edinburgh gig

Ahead of their visit to Edinburgh next week, Sheffield four-piece The Sherlocks have unveiled a new acoustic video for Chasing Shadows. You can watch it right here.

The track is lifted from the young band’s debut album, Live For The Moment.

The Sherlocks’ debut album was released last year to rave reviews and entered the official UK charts at No.6, making it the biggest selling debut album for a band this year.

“It’s starting to come back, guitar music,” bassist Andy Davidson said in an interview with music bible NME last year. “At the moment, there’s not really anyone leading it.

Lead singer Kiaran Crook went on to compare The Sherlocks to indie darlings like Arctic Monkeys and Kaiser Chiefs.

“Personally, anyway, I haven’t seen many of those bands – big guitar bands,” he said.

“I’m on about new bands that are coming through, so I don’t see why we couldn’t lead the way or certainly help contribute to the guitar scene and bring it back.”
