What a harmonious fusion when the national passions of football and music blend together – and UK indie music stars, Seagirls, have ensured their Hometown Tour does exactly this. With x2 Top 3 hits already under their belt, and their latest single chosen for an enviable place on FIFA ’23, Seagirls decided to knit their love of footie and music tightly together as they bound, energy laden, onto UK stages for their live tour this Autumn; which culminates in a massive gig at Alexandra Palace on 1 December, with support from Lauren Hibberd and Abbie McCarthy (DJ Set); this aims to be the last chance to buy a ticket to see the Sea Girls this Autumn.
As the band hand-selected the locations for their forthcoming tour, it seemed they should give something back to everywhere they visited. With a love of good old fashioned, grass roots footie, the Sea Girls decided to sponsor local Sunday League football teams by giving them new kits. Often the over-looked in the footie leagues, Seagirls felt it was time to show some love to the Sunday squad, those hardy passion-filled dynamos of the beautiful game (if only at weekend). So, the band reached out on socials and asked their fan base to nominate their Sunday League heroes who they felt deserved a new kit. Teaming up with Classic Football Shirts to provide each club with a fully Sea Girls-branded free UMBRO kit, it means new life, awareness and ever- needed support might be injected into both men’s and women’s grassroots football. Ahead of their show at Alexandra Palace, Sea Girls have gifted their local London football team, AFC Muswell Hill with the first of their kits; with the band and the footie team appearing on BBC’s MOTDx to launch the campaign.
Frontman Henry Camamile comments; “Our album, Homesick, was written to reflect everybody’s hometowns, so being able to give something back to our fans in this way is really important. We hope that by supporting fans’ local football teams with free upcycled kits, we will in a small way be giving something back to their communities and help with raising awareness for these teams”.
The Hometown Tour comes in support of the band’s acclaimed new record, Homesick. A personal record, lead singer Henry Camamile returned to his childhood home in Lincolnshire at the wake of the pandemic, plunging him into reflections of his past, both good and bad. A cathartic process, Henry seems to leaves nothing to the imagination with his astute storytelling and candid lyrics. Delving into some of his darkest moments, the uplifting album comes as a sense of relief, a gratefulness for survival. Lyrically raw and packed to the brim with hooks, the band step into new realms with an added sense of maturity and a bigger ambitious sounding record.
Beaming with critical acclaim for their energy-laden, euphoric live-performances, Seagirls aim to raise the roof off Ally Pally with their instantly memorable indie anthems. As sell-out shows across the UK culminate in this highly anticipated London Hometown performance, fans may expect Seagirls to demonstrate what it’s like to be young in 2022.
