SHEAFS are an indie rock five piece from Sheffield and have been releasing music since 2017. I almost featured their debut single ‘This is Not a Protest’ as track of the day a while back but for some reason (a reason I can’t remember now) it didn’t make it into the final list. I think maybe I struggled to find a shareable version of it – not everything is available on Youtube or Soundcloud…
In any case, that was no reflection on them because they’re a great band. ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is from their Vox Pop EP which came out earlier this year. It is 100% guitar driven indie rock, although here and they do seem to have a slight post-punk sound. It’s in the vocal delivery I think. Lawrence Feenstra has a disinterested snarl and a way of spitting out the lyrics like all the best front men do.
Yep, great stuff this. Another band to keep an eye on in 2021 I would say.
