Sea Girls Return to Nottingham Ahead of Anticipated Album Release

Ahead of the release of their third studio album ‘Midnight Butterflies’, which is due to be released on June 14, 2024, British indie rock band Sea Girls visited Rough Trade Nottingham for a signing session and early listen of their new project.

The British four piece made up of Henry Camamile (vocals, guitar), Andrew Dawson (bass), Rory Young (lead guitar), and Oli Khan (drums) welcomed fans into the independent record store’s first floor bar and venue, located in Hockley. The venue regularly holds up close and personal events, live in-stores and signings with stars across popular culture.

The release of title track ‘Midnight Butterflies’ has only built the anticipation for the release of the new album, with lead vocalist Henry Camamile explaining, “We wanted the opening song on Midnight Butterflies to really represent our approach to the album, which is all about letting go, allowing yourself to indulge in that need to escape and be carefree. I think we all crave that, especially as you take on more responsibility in life.”

Driven by prominent snare drum fills and strong vocals, the single draws upon Britpop influences. With its upbeat tempo and catchy chorus, it is built to get crowds moving at live shows.

The band last visited the city in November 2022, headlining Rock City to a sold-out crowd, after previously headlining Rescue Rooms.

“Maybe we’ll be back to perform a show soon” hinted Camamile as he reminisced on the band’s previous ventures in the city, stating that “Nottingham is always a good show.”

With this speculation, Sea Girls have already announced their next visits to the city, with the band set to perform an intimate album release show at Rough Trade Nottingham on June 16, 2024, which is already sold out and at Rock City on October 4, 2024.

“The culture of live shows has changed so much” Dawson believes. “There will be people in the front rows on FaceTime with their friends who you will see enjoying the show on the screen. It’s especially funny if they’re sat in a really bright room or something.”

“It’s definitely strange, really cool, but strange” Camamile adds.

‘Midnight Butterflies’ follows the release of several other single releases from the album, including ‘Young Strangers’, ‘I Want You To Know Me’, and ‘Weekdays and Workdays.’

Notably, indie-pop single ‘Young Strangers’ saw the band write the track in LA with Kid Harpoon, award-winning record producer who his best known for his work on ‘Harry’s House’ by Harry Styles and best-selling single of 2023 ‘Flowers’ by Miley Cyrus.

The past year has acted as a testament to Sea Girls’ remarkable talent and ability to create music which resonates with audiences, fulfilling a support slot for Louis Tomlinson, which saw the band perform at London’s O2 Arena and across Australia, as well as completing a successful Australian headline tour.

Sea Girls aren’t just riding a wave; they’re creating one. With the new album on the horizon, a dedicated fanbase, and a craft for creating irresistible anthems, they’re well on their way to becoming a major force in the indie rock scene. Their upcoming summer festival appearances and a strategic move to their own label, Alt. Records, solidify their commitment to artistic growth and long-term success.

Sea Girls’ third studio album ‘Midnight Butterflies’ will be available on all streaming platforms from June 14, 2024.
