Paul and Steven Herron, being actual brothers, have played and sang together for a lifetime. Hailing from the most north eastern borders of England, they are living proof of the old but clumsy adage, “Sharing the bath water results in musical osmosis”.
Up until 2014 they fronted Derby’s The Sons, but now they are back stronger than ever as a duo and have since created their aptly named forthcoming album ‘The Last One’s Left’. The first single ‘Stuck in the Sun’ has a tongue-in-cheek video celebrating the 3 days of sunshine the brothers have collectively seen in Derby this year so far, it’ll make you want to throw your computer in the bin and dance in the temperamental English summer sun.
“It’s all about classic pop music” says Paul Herron. Picture the lyrical canniness and refreshing melodies of Paul Simon, mixed with the overarching beatle-esque harmonies of Crowded House, glued together with Knopfler/Coxon/Marr guitar runs, and you have something totally at odds with the current fashions of the contemporary music scene. Which is what we’re secretly longing for isn’t it?
