Who’s keen for some sing-along indie goodness? We know we are, and boy does this week’s Track of the Week deliver! “Hometown” is the latest from London’s Sea Girls, and we guarantee you’ll be belting out the chorus in no time!
Taken from upcoming album Homesick, the track was written on frontman Henry Camamile’s first day home in Lincolnshire during the pandemic. With its nods to teenage life and old friends, “Hometown” is instantly and intimately familiar in all the right ways.
“‘Hometown’ is one of the most important songs I’ve written. It defines my philosophy.” says Henry. “While writing songs for the new album, I had this intense love for life. ‘Hometown’ is about people I knew growing up that aren’t around anymore. I’m saying ‘I see you’ – it’s a nod to them. I’m grateful for life and I am not going to jeopardise it in any way.”
Give “Hometown” a listen below!
If you can’t get enough of Sea Girls, the band have also unveiled a special mini documentary. Homesick At Night For Brixton is directed by band friend and long term collaborator Thomas Davis, and features fan interviews and live performance clips from the band’s recent sold out Brixton Academy show.
