Really well and thanks for having us take up some space!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Call Me Out”?
“Call Me Out” is the title track from our debut EP out in June.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I think a lack of events inspired me to write “Call Me Out”. It yearns for excitement and it asks for things to be shaken up. I had just started seeing someone when I wrote it, so that definitely played into the narrative, it was exciting.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
We are filming the video next week which we will be releasing soon. It’s gonna be fun with a great dark twist. I get to play one side of an odd love affair, we’re really looking forward to it.
How was the recording and writing process?
Recording was properly fun. We recorded “Call Me Out” as part of our EP with a friend in a studio above a burger restaurant that Oli, our Drummer and a few of our friends work in. We made sure we got everything sounding right, but it felt like half the time was spent drinking tea and beer eating ‘dead hippies’ – that’s a type of burger by the way.
The basis and feel of the song came so easily. I don’t think a song had come more naturally to me before. I wrote the course and melodies in about 40 minutes. I just rolled around my three favourite chords, variating the rhythms for each part. Then I played around with verse lyrics for the next month. Putting it together in the band came very naturally too, we just didn’t hold back. I think the arrangement gives it the excitement the lyrics are asking for.
What role does Bastille and The Kooks play in your music?
I think they are two bands who know how to write a good song. I certainly respect that. We make music that we want to hear, songs that vary and have soul. I’d say the main thing for me is writing a song that makes people move around. If you walk home with it in your headphones I want it to make you walk past your front door because you need to hear it to the end… and then again.
Does the new single mean we can expect new material – how’s that coming along?
You can definitely expect new material. We have our debut EP coming out on the 8th June and then we are recording again start afterwards. We have lots of new songs and we keep writing. Everyone writes and has their favourites and it’s good to have a pool to pick from, but it’s hard to choose which ones are gonna be next for recording.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Following our debut EP coming out, we’re heading straight back in to the studio to start work on tracks for our next EP, so expect news on that very soon.
Any plans to hit the road?
We’re playing a show to launch the release of our “Call Me Out” EP on 8th June at the infamous venue The Islington in London – tickets for that are available on-line now. We regularly play in London and have recently supported Slow Riot, ‘Banners’ and `The Shakers’. We’re back out on the road from July onwards.
What else is happening next in Sea Girls’ world?
Other than more writing, jamming and soul searching Summer is coming, so there will be lots of BBQs on Andrew and Oli’s roof.
