Ahead of their new album Homesick, Sea Girls have just dropped new single Lonely. The accompanying video stars JoJo Macari from Netflix’s Sex Education and The Irregulars. The band’s forthcoming sophomore album Homesick is out out March 18th (pre-order here*). Check out the new song and video below.
The video sees frontman Henry Camamile follow an unrequited love. Henry comments on the meaning behind the track:
It was written the day Ennio Morricone died, so was initially in honour of him, a nod to the good, the bad and the ugly – hence the whistle and the line ‘OK Corral’. It’s about the best friend I probably should have gone out with, but never did. We both moved on and the band happened and life got in the way for the both of us.Henry Camamile, frontman

New single Hometown available now
Having recently completed a sold out UK tour, the band have dropped their latest single Hometown. Having recently announced their new album Homesick for
January 14th March 18th, Hometown is the third track to be lifted from the new album and follows on from recent singles Again, Again and Sick.
Hometown was the first track frontman Henry Camamile wrote when he returned home at the start of the pandemic. He comments:
‘Hometown’ is one of the most important songs I’ve written. It defines my philosophy.” says Henry. “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 boys have also revealed a mini documentary titled ‘Brixton At Night – Homesick Documentary’, featuring fan interviews and live performance clips from the band’s recent sold out Brixton Academy headline show. The documentary was directed by band friend and long term collaborator Thomas Davis.
The new track follows on from the album’s lead single Sick as well as Again, Again. Like all of the album’s 13 tracks, it was written at Camamile’s childhood home in Lincolnshire during last year’s lockdown. Consequently, Homesick is a very personal album that sees the lead singer reflect and friendship, family and lover he found and lost along the way. The record was coo-produced remotely with producers Jacknife Lee, Jonny Coffer and Cass Lowe. Henry comments 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.
Following on from their sold out UK tour, Sea Girls will play a string of European dates in March 2022.
Homesick is out on March 18th 2022 via Polydor on limited edition vinyl* and digitally.
