Sea Girls Release Brand New Single ‘Hometown

Taken From Their Highly-Anticipated New Album Homesick
Out 14th January 2022 on Polydor Records

Recently Completed Rapturous Sold-Out UK Autumn Tour
Including London O2 Academy Brixton


Coming in fresh off the back of a rapturous sold out UK headline tour, Sea Girls waste no time in today dropping their brilliant new single ‘Hometown’ - taken from their highly-anticipated new album Homesick - out 14th January 2022 on Polydor. Listen HERE.
                                Fully encapsulating the spirit of the record, ‘Hometown’ is an album opener to be proud of. Written on frontman Henry Camamile’s first day home during the pandemic, it’s an epic statement of intent, with Killers-sized hooks – but one that’s also real, grounded and focused on teenage high times in the flatlands of Lincolnshire. 
                                “‘Hometown’ is one of the most important songs I’ve written. It defines my philosophy.” says Henry. “While writing songs for the new album, I had this intense love for life. Hometown is about people I knew growing up that aren’t around anymore. I’m saying ‘I see you’ - it’s a nod to them. I’m grateful for life and I am not going to jeopardise it in any way.”
                                A band well and truly into their stride, having sold out 1,000 copies of their zoetrope picture disc in hours,Sea Girls recently wrapped up what can only be described as one of the most highly-anticipated tours of the moment. 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.
                                The band have also unveiled their special mini documentary ‘Homesick At Night For Brixton’ that lands today. Directed by band friend and long term collaborator Thomas Davis, the mini documentary features fan interviews and live performance clips from the band’s recent sold out hometown Brixton Academy headline show. Watch here.
                                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.
