“Raving And Drooling” – Sheratons April 9, 2020

The Sheratons, one of Leeds most vibrant bands, have unleashed a new single, their third, on the world. It is an absolute banger that combines elements of the best of classic rock and a punky attitude. It is also something that will get everyone on the floor at Indie clubs and student discos. (Do they still have the latter or am I showing my age?) It was produced by Sugar House productions of Viola Beach and Glass Caves fame. You can sense the anger in Kane’s vocal delivery in this anti-drug treatise. This is underpinned by some spectacular hard rock riffing and screaming guitar from Finley. All of this is underpinned by a rhythm section that is comparable to Entwistle and Moon when the Who were at their peak with Alex on pounding bass and Emma smacking her drums to within an inch of their life. Music is a great positive in these strange days and this song will definitely brighten your day, I bloody love this song and this band. The Sheratons are getting plenty of radio airplay right now and in my humble opinion, they are destined for much bigger things!

“Part Of A Picture” – Sheratons May 30, 2019


The Sheratons are shaping up to be one of the finest bands in Leeds and maybe even the UK right now. The evidence is clearly there in their piledriving power in a live setting. The argument is firmly supported by the band’s most recent single “Part Of A Picture” release back in April. It is a melodic, indie rock tour de force that is rooted in rock history. There are tones of everyone from early Radiohead to the more spaced-out Byrds period. This song sounds like the product of a much more experienced band, but it isn’t, the Sheratons average age is still 19 or 20. Given the radio-play they are picking up with “Part Of A Picture” (BBC Introducing, Steve Lamacq, etc.) and the strength of previous releases, notably “These Kids” I reckon their first album will be a real winner.

The Sheratons with Kane Bulleyment’s astonishingly sharp and powerful vocal delivery, Finley Ryan’s knowledge and performance of great riffs and Emma Liu (drums) and Caty Labbett (bass) providing a Rolls Royce of an engine to power the song are definitely a force to be reckoned with. They should be very proud of this release! If you want to catch them live soon they are a part of the Futuresound Emerging Competition and will be appearing in one of the heats at the Wardrobe in Leeds on 20th June as a part of that (see below). You really need to be there! In the meantime click here to listen to “Part Of A Picture” on Spotify.
