Sea Girls are pleased to share details of a new single, in a series of imminent releases from the fast-breaking new band.
Following quickly on the heels of the R1 approved (Annie Mac/Huw Stephens/BBC Introducing) What For, Heavenly War furthers the bold claim that Sea Girls are one of the most reliable new bands for penning these instant indie-disco, festival ready anthems. Written and fronted by Henry Camamile, Heavenly War now follows Call Me Out, Lost, and What For as another timely example of what this young British band are capable of.
Arriving in London via Leicestershire and Kent, Sea Girls know there is nothing understated or apologetic about a bold chorus, especially one that can be sung in unison by thousands of fans together of all walks of life. Sea Girls have these choruses in spades. The thousands of fans are pending, but it’s surely only a matter of time. In Camamile we trust.
Henry Camamile on Heavenly War: “This song is about that weirdly exciting but quite difficult conflict of feelings and events that makes our lives worth living. Ultimately describing that moment when you feel the best about life. I think it’s a really positive message.”
Kicking off 2018, Huw Stephens cherry-picked Sea Girls as Ones To Watch For 2018 during his R1 show.

Sea Girls return to the road in February 2018 for their first headline tour of the UK including
an opening night at London’s Omeara on the 1st February.
Sea Girls are: Henry Camamile (Vocals/Guitar), Rory Young (Guitar), Andrew Noswad (Bass) & Oli Khan (Drums).
“Sea Girls, seagulls, get it? You’d think this summery quartet with a sound that gives a nod to the best of British indie like Catfish & The Bottlemen, Nothing But Thieves and The Amazons would be from the depths of Torquay or the far reaches of a Cornish beach, with enough seaside vibe for an arcade pier. But you’d be wrong. Sea Girls are a four piece from Leicestershire and Kent who are starting to make a name for themselves… a very large stone’s throw away from the nearest stretch of sea”. Henry and Rory originally hail from Lincoln whilst Oli, born in Hong Kong, grew up in Leicestershire. Andrew grew up in Kent as a child via stints in Indonesia and Sri Lanka later settling in Leicestershire.
Now 23, the band have been friends since school playing in rival bands and coming together to form Sea Girls in 2015. As a band they started out as a very different format. Oli was the singer, Rory on guitar, Henry now the singer and guitar player was the bassist and Andrew played a ‘K Oscillator’ weird synth, which he thought “sounded pretty cool”. Over time tastes change!
Henry continues “Our music sounds different now and we've shifted around instruments, but we have stuck together and developed our Sea Girls sound. We want to make diverse interesting music by constantly improving. If we can produce songs that make you get up spin around and then cry, we’re happy. I guess the ultimate would be for people to relate an experience or part of their life to our music and for us to grow with them”
