NYC Artists on the rise: Sherlock's Daughter May residency at The Knit begins on May 9.

NYC Artists on the rise: Sherlock's Daughter May residency at The Knit begins on May 9.

Sydney (Australia) to New York transplants Sherlock’s Daughter are set to begin a month long residency at The Knitting Factory for the next four Monday nights in May. Their sound is a fascinating hybrid of delicate female lead vocals and somewhat unsettling instrumentation, leaning towards the droney and the dreamy. "Song For Old People" emphases a chanting chorus vocal style, with primitive thumping on tree-stump percussion, then building out with pulsing keyboard undercurrents. "Reprise" gives off lullaby sensations via the lead vocal, while presenting an unsettling backdrop of uncertain instrumental accompaniment. “In The End” focuses even further on the gentle qualities of the bands lead voice. “Love can’t hurt us now” is a repeated lyric, as clackety percussion dances over top of deeper thumps and arpeggiated guitar patterns. An extended coda of rain and thunder sounds further establishes the intended mood. “Sons and Daughters” adds background vocals providing a call and response element found in early American spiritual folk music - however, droney guitar textures keep things very much rooted in the psych rock genre. The Knitting Factory shows are all ages and free to attend. - Dave Cromwell
