Exciting British guitar band Sea Girls have released the music video for their latest track “Hometown”, which is taken from their highly-anticipated new album Homesick that arrives in March 2022 on Polydor Records.
The video is a montage of visual footage from the band’s recent sold-out concert at the O2 Academy Brixton, which The Telegraph described as feeling “like the start of something brilliant and modern“.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the “Hometown” single and video, Sea Girls frontman Henry Camamile says, “Every hometown has its own identity – all of them are exciting and rewarding to visit for different reasons. 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“.
The track was originally premiered by Clara Amfo on BBC Radio 1 and it fully encapsulates the spirit of the band’s upcoming album. The track speaks to frontman Henry’s first day home during the pandemic and captures the idea of teenage high times in the flatlands of Lincolnshire.
Speaking further about how the track came about, Henry adds that “Hometown” is “one of the most important songs I’ve written. 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”.
While releasing the music video for “Hometown”, Sea Girls have also announced a run of nine special UK outstore performances to celebrate the release of their new album in May, with stops in Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Bristol and Nottingham, to mention a few.
