Introspective anthems for anxious times; no wonder it’s connecting with fans` NME Recorded in LDN with long term collaborator Producer Larry Hibbitt, this emotionally charged deeply personal hook laden debut features memorable jagged guitar pop, a taster of which can be heard on opener Transplant and the soaring Forever. Catchy anthemic fan favourites All I Want To Hear You Say & Do You Really Wanna Know? are an explosion of joyous indie sounds premiered as R1 Annie Mac’s Hottest Records. This emotionally charged deeply personal hook laden debut features memorable jagged guitar pop, a taster of which can be heard on opener Transplant and the soaring Forever. Bastard sons of The Killers and Strokes Sea Girls have created a debut that is stunningly uplifting ferociously reflective and most importantly brutally honest. Adept at delivering storytelling arena ready anthems go to a gig and you'll see them play tightly honed tunes to crowds chanting back every word to songs that pack such solid punches it's clear this band won't be held back. The last two years have seen them play a string of UK+European fests, support for Foals, Euro + US headline tours and sell out UK dates inc. LDN Forum Kentish Town. Next up a UK tour scheduled inc the already Sold Out O2 Academy Brixton. Picture the scene, 000s gathered hands aloft screaming bodies shaking with adrenaline as song after song hits them like a tidal wave. 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.
