Sea Girls – one of the UK’s finest bands – follow the huge success of their UK Top 3 charting debut album in 2020 by releasing their latest single ‘Sick’.
The new track comes as part of the announcement of their enthralling, highly-anticipated new album Homesick – out 14 January 2022 on Polydor. A band well and truly into their stride, Homesick sees Sea Girls – Henry Camamile, Rory Young, Andrew Dawson and Oli Khan – deliver thirteen measures of guitar driven pop brilliance including two bonus Deluxe tracks.
A deeply personal record, lead singer Henry returned to his childhood home in Lincolnshire at the wake of the pandemic, finding himself having to address and reflect on events from his past, both good and bad.

“Sick is me listing things I’m pissed off with and feeling sorry for myself, it’s a growing up song where I realise 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” Henry said of the track.
“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”
Teaming long-term producer Larry Hibbitt with Grammy Award winning Producers Jacknife Lee, Jonny Coffer and Cass Lowe to co-produce the record, Henry reflects on the process, “Imagine us locked down in the studio in rainy Brixton working with the producers remotely on the album in California’s Topanga Canyon. That clashing of worlds is the sound of this record, the DNA. Making an album this way, remotely and 5000 miles apart, was a crazy idea and shouldn’t have worked, but it did”
Renowned for their raucous, sweat-drenched live shows, the band the main stage of Reading (Friday) & Leeds (Saturday) Festivals later this month and will kick off their sold-out rescheduled UK tour dates in Leicester on October 7, culminating with their biggest headline show to date at Brixton Academy on October 15.
