Sea Girls, take you into their surreal world as they reveal the fun-fuelled animated video for their latest single ‘Do You Really Wanna Know?’, taken from their forthcoming debut album Open Up Your Head – out August 14th on Polydor.
The video, directed by world class animator Francesca de Bassa, takes the band’s own self isolated photography and brings them to life as kaleidoscopic, animated collages. What starts as an empty canvas soon turns into an absurd world swarming with anthropomorphic characters – a colourful and playful live concert of moving images where the lines between reality and fantasy blur.
Francesca recently created a captivating film on mental health awareness, which, in line with the personal lyrical themes of the song and topics that the band have discussed openly, made her the perfect fit to bring the subject matter to life.
With album Open Up Your Head, the Sea Girls 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 that becomes one of hope.
Taking their inspiration as kids, when The Killers, The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys debut albums were released, much of their success is driven by their energetic live performances and uncanny ability to write adrenaline-heavy guitar anthems with songs like ‘Violet’ and ‘All I Want To Hear You Say’, and the release of their latest EP Under Exit Lights.
The band have also been keeping busy in lockdown, releasing isolation ‘Living Room’ live performances and becoming the first band to host Netflix Parties with their fans.
Renowned for their frenetic, sweat-drenched sold-out live shows, the band will kick off their rescheduled April UK dates by upgrading the venues to play their biggest headline shows to date in November 2020 – which sold out in minutes, It will also see them play a career defining night at London’s legendary O2 Brixton Academy on 6th November.
