Review: "Young Strangers" - SEA GIRLS

Ending 2023 on a high note, Sea Girls has released a fiery indie-pop single called "Young Strangers." The track comes ahead of their third studio album, giving listeners a glimpse into the band's new sound. Frontman Henry Camamile sheds light on the song's meaning, stating, "Young Strangers’ is about seeing the similarities between two people who have just met. They get talking about their lives, about how they want to prove themselves and find purpose with a desperate need to get out of life’s daily rut. Never met before they realise they’re navigating the same feelings in the world and so are not young strangers anymore."

Co-written with Kid Harpoon, the producer of Harry Styles' Harry's House, "Young Strangers" demonstrates Sea Girls' innate abilities to create unforgettable melodies and an effortless indie-pop sound. The track is addictive, featuring driving drums, buoyant choruses, and vibrant guitar riffs. Light, wispy vocals deliver animated melodies, making the track a compelling listen. With a classic indie-pop/pop-rock sound, Sea Girls' "Young Strangers" would fare well in a playlist alongside acts like Blossoms, Inhaler, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and Royal Blood.

Comprised of four friends who met at school, Sea Girls is an English alternative band consisting of members Henry, Rory, Andrew, and Oli. The quartet formed over a shared love of music in 2015, debuting with their single "Call Me Out" in 2017. They have since released two studio albums, Open Up Your Head and Homesick, with both charting within the UK Top 3. Some of their popular releases include "All I Want To Hear You Say," "Do You Really Wanna Know?," and "Weekends and Workdays." Known for their anthemic hooks and energetic live shows, Sea Girls is certainly an act no one will want to miss. Anyone interested in seeing the band live can catch them on their 2024 "The Young Strangers Tour."
