With their latest track, the immensely catchy Open Up Your Head, UK indie four-piece Sea Girls firmly cement their rising star status. It’s the latest in an instalment of hook-laden indie bangers that celebrate the illustrious history of the indie-rock sound borne out of the British Isles. First emerging onto the scene in 2017 with their Call Me Out EP, Sea Girls embody the building blocks that dominated the guitar-heavy scene in the mid-to-late 00s. Citing The Killers and Arctic Monkeys among their notably varies list of inspiration, it’s easy to see the impact these scene stalwarts have had on Sea Girls. Their catalogue to date welcomes stadium-ready guitar riffs, and pairs them with euphorically lofty melody.
Comprising members Henry Camamile, Rory Young, Andrew Dawson and Oli Khan, Sea Girls met at school, having at various times performed together in a number of guises. Driven by a passion for live performance and a desire to be listed among songwriting greats – their name incidentally is taken from a song penned by Nick Dave – the quartet have music in their blood. Inspired by their families, Sea Girls have embraced simple honesty and the power of a engrossing melody in their songwriting. Their music, as has been rightfully noted before, is perfect for festival sunsets.
At the time of writing, Sea Girls are completing a UK headline tour before launching into the summer’s outdoor season. Offering the perfect festival sound, they’ve already turned the heads of the likes of Community Festival, TRNSMT and Kendal Calling organisers. With a debut yet to be titled full-length album in the works too, Sea Girls look to further embrace the greatness of their predecessors to make a serious mark all their own.
