Sea Girls have dropped the lyric video for their latest track ‘Hometown’ – taken from their highly-anticipated new album Homesick – out 25th March 2022 on Polydor.
The lyric video sees footage from Sea Girls’ recent sold out, packed-to-the-rafters O2 Academy Brixton show.
“Every hometown has its own identity – all of them are exciting and rewarding to visit for different reasons”, says frontman Henry Camamile. “We made this video from footage of one show on the tour – it’s just one of those special stories. We want to be a part of your story, you’re already a part of ours.”
Originally premiered by Clara Amfo on Radio 1 as her Future Sounds single, ‘Hometown’ fully encapsulates the spirit of the record and is an album opener to be proud of. Written on Henry’s first day home during the pandemic, it’s an epic statement of intent, with Killers-sized hooks – but one that’s also real, grounded and focused on teenage high times in the flatlands of Lincolnshire.
“Hometown’ is one of the most important songs I’ve written,” says Henry. “It’s about people I knew growing up that aren’t around anymore. I’m saying ‘I see you’ – it’s a nod to them. I’m grateful for life and I am not going to jeopardise it in any way.”
Along with today’s new lyric video, the band also recently announced a run of nine special UK outstore performances to celebrate the release of the new record. Coming to towns and cities across the UK in May, it will be a rare chance to see the band up close and personal.
