SINGLE REVIEW: Closer-Sea Girls

As soon as 'Closer' from the Sea Girls starts, it will have you hooked. The band's latest single is already a live favourite- and you can see why! It's infectious, anthemic and just all around great.




Sea Girls were named BBC's Sound of 2019 and are already on the path to becoming British indie stars and this will only help them get closer (excuse the pun).

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"

The 4-piece will play some of their biggest ever shows while on tour in October (see dates below) and 'Closer' was actually released last Friday when they played their 100th show at Manchester's Castlefield Bowl. They were supporting The Kooks as part of Sounds of the City.

They are playing many other shows as festival season continues. Be sure to check them out!
