A little outside the usual wheelhouse that we frequent, four boys banded together to combine their beautifully wide and off-beat influences.
Sea Girls meld together some dark instrumentals with confessional lyrics, bringing balls and passion to their unique sound. Relative newbies of the musical scene, the gang have struck both cult and commercial chords and, since their birth in 2015, have been picked up by Converse to take part in Converse Rubber Tracks.
The band have been busy writing and recording in 2015 and 2016 as well as playing local shows to enraptured audiences. Their first single ‘Daisy Daisy’ is bloody brilliant and has been celebrated and championed on Radio X and BBC London.
When and why did you start playing?
We’ve been playing together in various forms with one another for many years, but Sea Girls began last April.
What instruments do you play?
Henry sings and plays the guitar, Rory plays the guitar, Andrew plays the bass and Oli plays the drums
What was the first tune(s) you learned?
It was the 90s, so lots of Oasis.
Vinyl, tape, CD, or digital?
Digital on the streets, vinyl in the sheets.
How do you handle a fuck up on stage?
When life hands you lemons, you just gotta roll with the punches – just wink and pass it off as sweet, sweet vibes.
Who or what is your ultimate influence?
We’re chasing the unattainable goal of finding the perfect middle ground between Sigur Ros and Robbie Williams. Stay tuned to see how it turns out.
Where and when do you wish you’d been around to play at?
The birthplace of the stagedive – Iggy Pop at the Grande Ballroom Detroit circa 1968.
If I gave you an elephant where would you hide it?
Behind a larger elephant.
What is your favourite colour of socks to wear?
If we’re being honest here, we usually just paint our feet a different colour each morning.
If you were a biscuit, which would you be?
A Fox’s Viennese, a respectable exterior but pure debauchery underneath.
If you could have anyone locked in a room so that you could torment them for a day, whom would you choose and how would you torment them?
Mick Jagger. We would crank up the heat and every time asks for some water we would simply say, “You can’t, always get, what you want.” Then indignantly he’ll cry, “I CAN’T GET NO, SATISFACTION!”
