One of 2017’s underdogs, Sea Girls have delivered consistent bangers, ‘What If’ and ‘Lost’ especially! Catch up with them and find out what their top 10 tracks of 2017 are.
Their debut single ‘Call Me Out’ was a super catchy introduction, since then releases ‘Lost’ and ‘What For’ have taken them to new heights each time, they might be new but they’re definitely well practised. 2018 is sure to be a big one for them, so get ahead of the curve and get to know them now.
Listen to their top 10 tracks of the year here also, featuring the likes of The Amazons, Charli XCX and Wolf Alice.
What have been your most memorable moments of 2017?
2017 has been the best year in exciting moments for us. Our two London headline shows that we sold out were incredible and watching unfamiliar faces growing in numbers at our shows and packing venues at festivals around the country has been a nice shock. Starting to work with a really amazing producer like Larry Hibbett who gets our songs has been super positive for our music and great to work with a guy who gets the best out of us.
What’s your album of the year?
Wolf Alice, “Visions of life”, it is varied, sonically brave, lyrically interesting and very cool.
What was the best gig (besides your own) that you’ve been to this year?
The best show any of us went to was Arcade Fire playing in Manchester in July. I have never seen such an energetic and poignant performance. They finished beautifully with Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart.
Where will you be this Christmas and New Year?
We will be in Lincolnshire, Leicester and Kent.
What’s your favourite thing to eat or drink at Christmas?
I know for me and Rory (guitarist) it is dangerous amounts of minced pies which we started on early whilst practicing for our BBC Introducing live session in November.
What’s the best and worst Christmas present you’ve ever received?
Best Christmas present I ever got was my notebook for song ideas. For the worst we’d hate to be ungrateful so I think a pass on that one.
Do you have any resolutions for 2018?
Have even more fun as a band, watch the Nick Cave biopic Rory keeps trying to get us to watch, and sorting out Sea Girls EU citizenship, so we won’t need to apply for 27 different visas on a European tour.
What is one thing you hope does not continue into 2018?
Strictly Come Dancing. Really don’t get it.
What album are you hoping for/looking forward to the most from 2018?
Sea Girls debut.
What band/act do you think we should keep our eyes on in 2018?
I think YONAKA and Otzeki
