The Song

Driven by bright pianos, glorious electric guitar arpeggios and bold memorable chorus harmonies, it’s the perfect follow up to last month’s “Going Down The Plughole”. The narrator of the song berates and advises the “Babu” character throughout, but about what, we don’t find out, lending the subject matter to any situation where you might find that someone just “never listens”.
Reviewers have compared the tone, sound and melodies to such luminaries as The Byrds, the La’s, The Beatles, the Smiths, and maybe another few “The” bands, who knows!!

The Herron Brothers are Paul and Steven Herron, biological brothers since birth and musical collaborators for more than half a lifetime. Hailing from the beautiful county of Northumberland, they currently call Derby their home.

Having recently completed their third independently recorded and released studio album, the single “Going Down The Plughole” serves as an introduction to these twelve new songs slated for a July release. The collection will be the follow up to 2020’s The Herron Brothers”, and was originally planned for a 2022 release, however, things too upsetting to mention in at short bio delayed that. Surprisingly, one of them was NOT the pandemic.

Broadly, The Herron Brothers take their influences from pop music released between the 50s and now (The Everlys, Michael Jackson, Mark Knopfler, The Strokes, The Beatles) but absolute favourites who have guided their song writing/performing journey the most are Paul Simon, Neil Finn and REM.

Dalliances, let-downs, incompetence, and the rolls of dice have led them to their current situation, whereby the only thing they DON’T do independently, is manually press and sew their own merchandise. So yes, they are tired, but, and finally they can say this, “MASSIVELY excited to release their new music to the world, and, hopefully, perform it live in the autumn.
