As UK rockers Sea Girls gear up for biggest headline show of their careers at Brixton Academy, they have also found the time to drop their new track Again Again – taken from their highly-anticipated new album Homesick – out 14th January 2022 on Dew Process. Although steeped in self-destruction, regret, the art of losing friends, and whiling away time on the internet, Again Again arrives as a soaring upbeat pop banger that builds and builds, offering a sense of urgency and a stratospheric chorus to boot.
A band well and truly into their stride, Homesick sees Sea Girls, Henry Camamile, Rory Young, Andrew Dawson, and Oli Khan, deliver 13 measures of guitar driven pop brilliance, including two 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 5,000 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.
