Sea Girls Reveal Live Session Of New Track ‘Transplant’ From Acclaimed Debut Album ‘Open Up Your Head’ Out Now

Following the consistent success of radio playlisted singles, critical acclaim and selling out shows across the UK and beyond, Sea Girls today release their highly anticipated debut album ‘Open Up Your Head’ – on Polydor – featuring fourteen doses of memorable guitar-pop brilliance produced by Larry Hibbitt in London.

Today also sees the band share a live session of new album track ‘Transplant’ – which follows ‘Forever’, ‘All I Want To Hear You Say’, ‘Do You Really Wanna Know?’ & ‘Ready For More’- all having dominated the airwaves and are ready to be sung by fans up and down the country over the coming months. Watch the video for ‘Transplant’ below:

Sea Girls - Transplant (Live Session)

With album Open Up Your Head, the band’s songwriting has elevated, with frontman Henry Camamile stepping into the spotlight as a genuine storyteller for his generation. The album is fit to burst with colourful melodies, guitar and synth hooks – an explosion of joyous indie rock held together to reflect Camamile’s darker songwriting on topics such as a previous traumatic head injury, the anxiety that ensued, and resulting adolescent vices. In accessing those darkest and least comfortable parts of himself the record becomes one of hope.

Henry admits his and Rory’s writing – and the bands performing – comes right from the heart. With storytelling being reminiscent of a young Brandon Flowers Henry explains;

“I don’t buy all the love and flowers stuff. Real relationships fall apart, you get hurt and you have to deal with it so you do what you have to do to get over it. I think what has saved me is music.”

As well as their sold out November 2020 UK headline tour, that includes a date at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, making them one of only a few bands to sell it out before the release of a debut record in recent times, Sea Girls will also give fans a chance to see their energetic live show in an intimate setting on a run of UK album launch shows. This includes a date at Manchester Gorilla – a venue recently saved from closure. Ticket information is available here.
