Tuesday, January 9, 2018 — They've been called smoky, cinematic, and ghostly. Radio DJ Steve Lamacq calls them "mesmerising". Singer/guitarist Locks Geary-Griffin sings lullabies of a sort, accompanied by two wise men and one wise woman — Mike Byrne (double bass), Andy Marvell (drums) and Marian McClenaghan (fiddle). Together they are LOCKS. Together they are mesmerising.
Their sound is delicious, infectious, playful, and almost other-worldly. This puts it well:
"[LOCKS] masterfully weave eerie alt-folk with suspenseful blues rock, which they call skeletal blues" The Revue
Whatever you call it, UK radio has already picked up on the fast-rising London-based band's music. Their debut EP 'Rattle Them Bones' (which features 'Wishbone' and 'The Gin Song') was championed by Steve Lamacq and praised by Tom Robinson and Gary Crowley. 'The Gin Song' was one of Steve Lamacq’s favourites of 2017.
