Taken From Their Highly Anticipated New Album Homesick
Out 25th March 2022 on Polydor
May UK Indie Record Store Dates Announced – Tickets Here
Sea Girls have delivered another superb offering today in new track ‘Sleeping With You’ – taken from their upcoming new album Homesick – out 25th March 2022 on Polydor.
A raw and honest track, ‘Sleeping With You’ sees a candid frontman in Henry Camamile. With his head in America, he opens up in an acoustic led song that oozes emotion and slowly builds into an explosive track that makes its mark and leaves nothing to the imagination.
Henry explains; “This song is about dreaming of your American ex-girlfriend instead of the girl you’re with right now. It’s a warning to not waste your time on me as my heart is still with another, so I’ll only let you down. It’s about not letting yourself love anyone else, although you know you should.”
In October Sea Girls wrapped up what can only be described as one of the most highly-anticipated tours of the year. Nearly two years in the making, the boys tore up eleven sold out shows, including a packed-to-the-rafters O2 Academy Brixton, with The Telegraph stating that the “show felt like the start of something brilliant and modern”. Their debut album Open Up Your Head was also recently officially certified as a ‘BRIT Breakthrough’ album by the BPI having achieved over 30,000 OCC sales on a debut album.
Sea Girls – Henry Camamile, Rory Young, Andrew Dawson and Oli Khan, deliver thirteen measures of guitar driven pop brilliance including 2 bonus Deluxe tracks. A deeply personal record, lead singer Henry Camamile returned to his childhood home in Lincolnshire at the wake of the pandemic, finding himself having to address and reflect on events from his past, both good and bad. A cathartic process, Henry leaves nothing to the imagination with his astute storytelling and candid lyrics. Delving into some of his darkest moments, the uplifting album comes as a sense of relief, a gratefulness for survival. Lyrically raw and packed to the brim with hooks, the band step into new realms with an added sense of maturity and a bigger ambitious sounding record.
Teaming long-term producer Larry Hibbitt with Grammy Award winning Producers Jacknife Lee, Jonny Coffer and Cass Lowe to co-produce the record, Henry reflects on the process: “Imagine us locked down in the studio in rainy Brixton working with the producers remotely on the album in California’s Topanga Canyon. That clashing of worlds is the sound of this record, the DNA. Making an album this way, remotely and 5000 miles apart, was a crazy idea and shouldn’t have worked, but it did.”
Sea Girls, one of the most exciting guitar bands to have emerged in recent times, are the torchbearers for the next wave. Delivering sing-along anthems for the masses, the band’s journey is well and truly on its way.
