Sea Girls, a four piece from Leicestershire and Kent, give a nod to the best of British indie in their music, such as Catfish & The Bottlemen, Nothing But Thieves and The Amazons.
The band have been friends since school playing in rival bands and coming together to form Sea Girls in 2015. As a band they started out as a very different format. Oli was the singer, Rory on guitar, Henry now the singer and guitar player was the bassist and Andrew played a ‘K Oscillator’ weird synth, which he thought “sounded pretty cool”. Over time tastes change!
Henry says “Our music sounds different now and we’ve shifted around instruments, but we have stuck together and developed our Sea Girls sound. We want to make diverse interesting music by constantly improving. If we can produce songs that make you get up spin around and then cry, we’re happy. I guess the ultimate would be for people to relate an experience or part of their life to our music and for us to grow with them”
Produced by Larry Hibbett (Nothing But Thieves, Sundara Karma) lead singles `Call Me Out’, `Lost’ and imminent `What For’ are already pricking up ears with a Radio 1 playlist and supporters Annie Mac and Huw Stephens BBC Introducing as well as on-line support with the likes of:
‘What For’: https://seagirls.lnk.to/whatfor
They are looking forward to their first UK headline tour in February next year. “We’ll have our second EP out by then, so more music for people to sink their teeth into. We played a lot of gigs before we ever went into the studio, so want anyone who watches us to feel like they have been to a unique show.”
It may be early days for Sea Girls, but if these tightly honed rock songs keep packing such solid punches, they won’t be held back for long. Catch Sea Girls live on their debut tour around the UK in February 2018. Tickets available at: www.seagirls.net (all gigs are 14+ unless otherwise stated)
