Sea Girls have released their latest single, ‘Hometown’, unveiling their new mini documentary ‘Brixton At Night – Homesick Documentary’.

Their latest offering is taken from their upcoming album of the same name, out January 14 2022 on Polydor. ‘Hometown’ received its first play on Radio 1, premiered by Clara Amfo on her Future Sounds show.

Strained guitars open ‘Hometown’, and the single is an anthemic, upbeat, peppy indie track. ‘

Hometown’ was written on the first day Sea Girls frontman Henry Camamile spent at home during the pandemic, and the track pays homage to Camamile’s teenage years in Lincolnshire: “I learnt to swim with you/ I went to school with you/ I learnt to drive before you/ And I got high with you”.

Camamile called the track “one of the most important songs” he’s written. “It defines my philosophy,” he said, adding “While writing songs for the new album, I had this intense love for life. Hometown is 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.”

The release coincides with the band’s new mini documentary, ‘Brixton At Night – Homesick Documentary’, directed by long-time collaborator Thomas Davis. 

The clip, featuring interviews with the band and their fans, as well as live performances from their recent Brixton Academy headline show, also includes several new songs from their upcoming album.

Their upcoming album, ‘Homesick’, has seen long-time producer Larry Hibbitt, Jacknife Lee, Jonny Coffer and Cass Lowe team up to co-produce the record. 

Camamile has reflected on the recording process, saying: “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.”
