Bio

The adventures of Sherlock’s Daughter produce a sound where noise meets calm, mystery challenges imagination, and nothing is as it seems. Born from a late-night revelation on a stormy eastern Sydney shore, front woman Tanya Horo weaved the fatasy worlds of the sepia-tinged memories of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, fleeting new-world colonial adventure & ornate pagan ceremonial impressions. Bridging the gap between insanity & parable, the 5 piece - comprised of Tim Maybury (guitar), William Russell (drums), Liam Flanagan (bass) and Jonti Danimals (live electronics & samplers) - knit together a heaving experience of heavy dream pop through shifting frames of multi-instrumentation... The music is replete with diverse elements such as live videogame tweaking, percussive sandpaper, echoing handclaps, marimba, sampled rhythmic scenes and sweet, uneasy harmonies. The debut self-titled 5 track EP has made blissful fractures with Australian radio, with the the tracks ‘Kids’, 'Sons And Daughters' being added to A-List rotation on Sydney’s FBi94.5fm and Triple J selecting the band as it’s ‘Unearthed Feature Artist’ in June, followed with spot rotation for 'Song For Old People' and 'Kids'. Support & tours this year with Metric (Can), School Of Seven Bells (US) and The Temper Trap have pegged Sherlock's Daughter at a rapturous live force. Sherlock’s Daughter are currently on tour in the US, including three shows as part of the prestigious CMJ Music Conference in New York City. They have also been selected as a Top 3 Finalist in the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards 2009.

What a refreshing track. The lead singers haunting vocals are accentuated by a beautiful yet simple backing band. Highly impressive.
