About to announce their biggest festival appearances to date Sea Girls have already started 2020 off by tearing through a rapturous EU headline tour and now unleash a brand new video for their life-affirming new single ‘Ready For More’, taken from their forthcoming new EP ‘Under Exit Lights’ – out March 6th on Polydor.
The video, directed by Sophia & Robert (Odelay Films – Pale Waves, The Kooks, David Guetta) “is a thinly veiled dark message in vibrant frenzied and down the rabbit hole way” says singer Henry Camamile. Revealing the band’s artistic qualities the video is mixed with encapsulating performance shots, whilst delving deep into the mindset of lead singer Henry Camamile’s song writing at the time Ready For More was written
On the themes of the video, Henry explains; “The video for ‘Ready For More’ is one part Alice, one part Harley, and I think a lot of me. At the time of writing it I was so unsure of who I was, what I was doing or if I could trust myself. I was my own worst enemy.”
2019 was quite a year for Sea Girls, one of the UK’s most exciting new bands, named after a misheard lyric from a Nick Cave song. They signed a major record deal with Polydor, are touring the globe, triumphed at Reading festival for a second year running and played their biggest UK shows to date selling out London’s Forum to 2,300 fans in October 2018.
Sea Girls are a band aiming first and foremost at being the sing-a-long 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.
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.”
Sea Girls are spreading their wings around the globe. Seeing them live gives you that feeling of being wrapped up in a band who seize the euphoric and turn it into something vital and real in front of your eyes, that feeling is what makes Sea Girls special. Emblazoned front and centre it’s what Sea Girls bust and pulse with – a band aiming first and foremost at being the sing-a-long torch bearers for a whole new generation.
