History

Formation and early beginning

The members individually hail from Leicestershire, Kent, and Lincolnshire. Although the band was not officially formed until 2015, it was in high school that the members had all met. During this time each member had played in separate bands, and it was not until they all eventually settled in London that they come together to form their own.

The band's name came from a misheard lyric of a Nick Cave song, "Water's Edge". Guitarist Rory Young loves the song but always sung the words as 'sea girls' instead of 'city girls'. When asked about the name, drummer Oli Khan said, "We liked the nostalgia and whimsiness of it, but we also just needed a name pretty quickly at the time!"

2017–2019: Call Me Out, Heavenly War, and Adored

The band's debut single, "Call Me Out", was self-released on 1 June 2017. This live fan favourite was succeeded by the release of a four-track EP of the same name on 8 June 2017. Their second EP, Heavenly War, was released on 4 January 2018. A third EP, Adored, was released on 5 June 2018 as a tribute to the band's first single, "Call Me Out". To celebrate this anniversary, Sea Girls released this EP as a special edition 7" vinyl. These EPs were all self-released before the band eventually signed with Polydor Records in 2019.

Sea Girls started out the 2018 festival season at the BBC Music festival The Biggest Weekend 26 May 2018 in Swansea. They went on to play the Reading and Leeds Festivals on 25 and 26 August 2018. The band was invited back to play the festival the following year in 2019. The band is also set to play at Reading and Leeds Festivals 2020 on the BBC Radio 1 stage, making this their third year in a row on the festivals’ lineup.

Their last single of 2018, "All I Want To Hear You Say", released 11 September, set the band up to be featured as part of predicted successful acts of 2019 by multiple sources. In December 2018, it was announced that Sea Girls had been included in the BBC's Sound of 2019 poll. The band were also included on predictors of successful acts in 2019 by Radio X, It's All Indie, and Dork. It was announced in May 2019 that the group had signed a worldwide multi-album deal with Polydor Records. Their first release under Polydor, "Damage Done", was released on 7 May 2019. It was then named by Annie Mac as the hottest record in the world on BBC Radio 1 Annie Mac show. The band's second single released under Polydor was "Violet" on 20 August of the same year, and was once again praised as the hottest record in the world by Annie Mac.

Shortly after the band's first signed release it was also announced that they would be supporting Russian and Ukraine tour dates in August of Foals's Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost World Tour. In December 2019 the band completed their first American tour, playing shows at the Mercury Lounge in New York City and at the Hotel Café in Los Angeles. Sea Girls closed out 2019 with an inclusion in the MTV Push: Ones To Watch 2020 shortlist.

2020: Under Exit Lights and Open Up Your Head

Their first release of 2020, "Ready For More", was released in January 2020, along with the announcement of their first EP under Polydor; Under Exit Lights which was released on 6 March 2020. Their debut album, Open Up Your Head, was released on 14 August 2020 and peaked at number 3 on the UK Albums Chart; having been announced on 29 April 2020 along with the release of single "Do You Really Wanna Know?". Album launch shows across record stores in the UK were set for November 2020 and January 2021, but later rescheduled several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and finally were done in August and September 2021.

2021–present: Homesick

The band's first release of 2021, a cover of "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" by Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, was released on 12 February 2021. Later, on 9 August 2021, they announced that their second album, Homesick, was set for release on 14 January 2022. However, in December 2021, they stated that the album was delayed until 25 March 2022, but then in early March 2022, they moved the album release one week early to 18 March 2022. The album was preceded by the lead single, "Sick", which was released on the same date as the new album announcement. It was followed by the singles, "Again Again", "Hometown", "Sleeping with You", and "Lonely". Homesick peaked at number 3 on the UK Albums Chart, making it their second attempt to have consecutively charted at the same position. On 23 April 2022, the band released a post album single, "DNA", in an exclusive limited 7" vinyl for the 15th anniversary of Record Store Day. It was then released digitally on 5 May 2022, alongside the music video. In support of the album release, intimate record store shows were held in May 2022, as well as their biggest UK tour to date which will include a show at Alexandra Palace, London, and is scheduled for November 2022.
