As they gear up for a huge 2020, Sea Girls have kicked off the year being hotly tipped by media across the board. Sea Girls unleash their dynamic new anthem ‘Ready For More’, taken from their forthcoming new EP ‘Under Exit Lights’ – out March 6th on Polydor and available on limited edition 12’’ vinyl, CD and all Digital Service Providers.
The band, whose members come from Rutland, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, and Kent, have been together since 1995, are named for a misheard lyric in a Nick Cave song, and are signed with Polydor. Speaking with Wonderland Magazine, charismatic lead singer Henry Camamile shed some light on the name:
“Sea Girls are named after the lyric “city girls” in the Nick Cave track “Water’s Edge” off the Push The Sky Away album. Rory, our guitarist, loves the song and used to think Nick was singing Sea Girls and it stuck when we were thinking of a name for the band.”
In March they release the brand new EP, ‘Under Exit Lights’, featuring more infectious jagged life songs and in April play their biggest UK tour yet. “The lyrics for these songs draw their soul from my life of late nights and the mornings after – about being young and going out a lot,” Henry explains. “It involves dark thoughts, anxiety, but ends in hope, positivity and optimism.”
On the themes of the new single, Henry explains,
“‘Ready For More’ is the bad apple of the EP. It looks and sounds sweet, but it’s basically staring into this abyss of nihilistic behaviour and being scared that I couldn’t change it. This song practically embraces the slippery slope I was on.”
2019 was quite a year for Sea Girls, one of the UK’s most exciting new bands, which included touring the globe, triumphing at Reading and playing their biggest UK show to date when they sold out London’s Forum to 2,300 fans.
Sea Girls are a band aiming first and foremost at being the singalong torch bearers for a whole new generation. Much of their success is driven by their essential energetic live performances and uncanny ability to write songs like ‘Violet’ and ‘Damage Done’ that enjoy heavy Radio 1 support.
Sea Girls are spreading their wings around the globe and continue to lyrically look their generation in the eye, singing to their era and embracing their silent crisis of confidence.
