TUNE SHEAFS - This Is Not A Protest
Sheffield five piece SHEAFS are set to self release their rampant new single ‘This Is Not A Protest’ on November 24th.
‘This Is Not A Protest’ is the first release since performing on the Jack Rocks, This Feeling Stage at Reading Festival 2017.
Support for SHEAFS includes, Playlisting on Virgin Radio; Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1; This Feeling Track of the Week on Radio X; airplay from Steve Lamacq, Recommends & daytime on BBC 6 Music. SHEAFS have also performed live on Edith Bowman’s breakfast show after beating over 400 other bands to win the Virgin FreshFest competition.
SHEAFS are a five-piece indie rock band from Sheffield, which formed in the later end of 2015 and is comprised of Lawrence Feenstra (lead vocals), Chris Goodacre (guitar/backing vocals), Charles Mellor (guitar), Callum Wright (bass/backing vocals), Charlie Eastap (drums).
Following on from the legacy of previous single ‘Mind Pollution’, ‘This Is Not A Protest’ is a rigorous yet melodic offering fitting riff drizzled breakdowns, thunderous drum fills and a painfully catchy chorus into a well packed 2:39 package. ‘This is Not A Protest’ is as melodically engrossing as it is lyrically genius: This song will get stuck in your head.
SHEAFS reputation rests heavily on the back of a live performance that embodies both infectious energy and spiky new wave rhythms. In an interview with Little Indie Blog; guitarist Chris Goodacre describes their live set: “We walk on stage with the attitude and the hunger that every time we play it will be the last time. If you’re standing still, we’ll make you move. If you’re looking, we’ll make you stare and if you hear we’ll make you listen.” SHEAFS live sound has earned them a consistent place in This Feelings tour book as well as slots on the Isle of Wight, Reading Festival bills and their largest show to date in front of a 2000 strong crowd at Y Not Festival. SHEAFS have supported the likes Tom Grennan, Pretty Vicious, Idles, Hidden Charms and The Vryll Society.
Airplay includes Huw Stephens, Radio 1; Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music; Gordon Smart and John Kennedy, Radio X; Edith Bowman, Virgin Radio; Dean Jackson, BBC Introducing East Midlands.
