What’s on with… Sheafs

Sep 4, 2017 / Music

Formed in Sheffield but hailing from all kinds of UK provinces, Sheafs are part of that flurry of emerging young bands combining cocksure bravado, urgent-but-crafted tunes and a reputation for putting on one hell of a live show.

Who:

Lawrence Feestra – vocals
Chris Goodacre – guitar
Callum Wright – bass
Charles Mellor – guitar
Charlie Eastap – drums

The quintet’s guitar melodies and general vigour reference very early Arctic’s but their mesmerisingly inclusive state presence is very much their own. With support from Steve Lamacq and a successful festival season with indie promoters, This Feeling, under their belt (they played Y Not’s Quarry stage to around 2000 people), Sheafs are ready to take on the masses without a second glance.

What:
‘Mind Pollution’, is the band’s clarion call. An energetic shot of rabble-rousing indie, complete with rollicking guitar riffs, terrace-friendly chanting and a pace of about 420mph can only be complete with the lyrics “I’m too young for this modern age.”
