Following the huge success of their top three debut album in 2020, one of the UK’s most exciting bands, Sea Girls, have announced their highly-anticipated new album Homesick, out January 14, 2022 on Polydor.
Additionally, the band dropped the album’s first taste with the infectiously honest “Sick.” The track was premiered by Arlo Parks as the ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1 and debuted live on the band’s frenetic mainstage slot at Latitude Festival.
Homesick is set to find Sea Girls―Henry Camamile, Rory Young, Andrew Dawson and Oli Khan―delivering thirteen measures of guitar driven pop. 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.
The band decided to team long-time producer Larry Hibbitt with Grammy Award winners 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.”
Regarding the first single, Camamile says, “‘Sick’ is me listing things I’m pissed off with and feeling sorry for myself, it’s a growing up song where I realize I’m no longer a young child. It’s me in my bedroom at home ranting with my thoughts and going down the hole of being pissed. I am sick of everything – from things I used to love through to things that feel vacuous, like consuming and buying. All these emotions are piling up and it’s me just asking for a reset, a childish solution.”
