Sea Girls release new track ‘Closer’

The band have just kicked off a huge festival season ahead of a UK headline tour in October.

One of the UK’s most promising new acts, Sea Girls, today release their anthemic new song Closer, available now as an Instant Grat and comes during a stellar run of festival dates that are seeing the 4-piece capture huge audiences across Europe.

The band will also play their biggest ever shows this autumn, including a night at the O2 Forum Kentish Town, London on 10 October. Dates below:

2 October – Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
3 October – The Fleece, Bristol
4 October – The Loft, Southampton
10 October – O2 Forum Kentish Town, London
11 October – O2 Academy 2, Leicester
12 October – Tenement Trail, Glasgow
16 October – The Welly, Hull
17 October – Academy 2, Manchester
18 October – O2 Academy 2, Liverpool
19 October – The Sugarmill, Stoke

Led by swathes of infectious melodies and guitar lines, Closer is a firm live favourite amongst fans and drops today, marking the band’s 100th show, at Castlefield Bowl in Manchester tonight, supporting The Kooks as part of Sounds Of The City.

Speaking of the track, guitarist Rory Young says; “The song came together in a backwards fashion in a hotel after our debut European gig in Barcelona. It was originally written as an electronic track about being far away. Replacing the synths with guitars back in London gave the track an absolute new lease of life”

Following a whirlwind start to the year, which saw them being named as the only band on the BBC’s Sound of 2019 list and playing their biggest ever sold out live show at London’s Heaven, the band also signed a record deal with Polydor Records (Billie Eilish, Sam Fender, The 1975).

With three EPs and a plethora of tracks under their belts, including the BBC Radio 1-playlisted Damage Done, as well as a recent live session for Annie Mac (listen here), the band continue their busy summer of festivals across the UK and mainland Europe.
