“I'm sick of being drunk / I'm sick of being sober / I'm sick of being in love / Sick of it being over”Like the rest of us, Henry Camamile is sick of the last 18 months.Right before the pandemic hit, Sea Girls were poised to make their next triumphant step. Camamile (lead vocals, guitar), Rory Young (lead guitar), Andrew Dawson (bass) and Oliver Khan (drums) had just come off their first European headlining tour, playing 20 dates across the continent and debut tour of the US. Upcoming back home: huge sold out shows at London’s Brixton Academy and Glasgow Barrowlands. The London-based four-piece’s debut album, Open Up Your Head, was set for the summer, right before they played high profile main stage slots at UK festivals Reading andLeeds, Latitude, TRNSMT as well as a string of European festivals inc. Lollapalooza Berlin and Rock Werchter. Championed for spearheading the 2018 resurgence of great British guitar bands Sea Girls who areone of the most exciting young guitar bands in the UK had 2020 all mapped out.And then you-know-what.During lockdown, Sea Girls did what they could to entertain their fans and continue their momentum, including acoustic gigs on Instagram Liveand broke the Netflix party app with their fan sharing film nights. It’s a mark of the young band’s out-of-the-box successand of the passion of their fanbase, that last August they landed Open Up Your Head at Number Three in the UK album charts, nestling next to big guns Biffy Clyro and Taylor Swift.But already Camamile –a searching, questioning, often self-deprecationwriter –had opened up his head in a new direction. “It was actually quite a good thing to stop,” he says of the band’s enforced gigging furlough, “because we’d been going at it for three years.”The band had played200 shows when the pandemic hit, and released 44 tracks in 4 and a half years (that averages a track every 37 days).And they’d been going at it hard, notably their singer, a frontman who fully, charismatically embraced the requirements –and the perks –of the job. And he’d managed to do that after suffering a major head injury when a pub cellar door knocked him out, resulting in concussion hat plagued him for the best part of two years.“It was good to pull the plug. Even putting that first album together, we were doing it blind –in a good way. But that’s exciting, and that’s how a first album should be. I almost love the fact that I didn’t know what I was doing. That chaos is the reason I wanted to be in a rock band.”The other reason he wanted to be in a rock band: to make a record as deeply personal, gloriously realised and thrillingly revelational as Sea Girls’ second album. Produced between Brixton (London) and California’s Topanga Canyon with producers Larry Hibbert and Grammy-winner Jacknife Lee, Johnny Coffer and Cass Lowe, it’s called Homesick. It’s not only the sound of a rock star going home, but also digging deep. A wondering of where they belong, a hankering for life back on the road -the sound of a writer reaching out in a powerfully relatable way.“Homesick embodies the need to fit in somewhere. It’s a feeling I have of belonging -whetherthat be with another person, life on the road with my best friends, being back at home with my family, or even in a story like Lonely -it’s really about remembering that. I’ve always wondered where I belong and what my identity truly is -none more so than during the writing of this album. I’ve aired these feelings in the most honest way I know how.”
