We can safely say that Sea Girls is one of the most electric UK bands we’ve ever come across. Comprised of Henry Camamile, Rory Young, Andrew Dawson, and Oli Khan, Sea Girls fleshes out their entire discography because they really do strive to put as much effort into each of their projects as possible. For anyone who’s searching for a 2000’s reminiscent alternative rock band, allow Sea Girls to fill that spot with their new single, “Sick.”
On “Sick,” Sea Girls explained,
“‘Sick’ is me listing things I’m pissed off with and feeling sorry for myself. It’s a growing up song where I realize I’m no longer a young child. It’s me in my bedroom at home ranting with my thoughts and going down the hole of being pissed. I am sick of everything – from things I used to love through to things that feel vacuous, like consuming and buying. All these emotions are piling up and it’s me just asking for a reset, a childish solution.”
When life gets ridiculously tough, Sea Girls knows how easy it is to want a restart button, as proven by their wishful thinking in “Sick.” Layered with shimmery guitars and lively percussion, “Sick” is the type of uncontainable banger we’re desperate to hear live. Topped off with atmospheric synths and irresistibly precious bass lines, this wholesome cut gets us more than pumped for what’s to come next from Sea Girls.
“It was a turning point in the writing for this album where the songs became about worrying for other people and how they were feeling. The pivot where I started writing clearly with a bigger perspective. I literally feel myself growing up throughout this song.”
