London-based quartet Sea Girls sold out a packed, sweaty Lexington on an autumn Monday evening.
Kicking off proceedings was Dahlia Sleeps, who I was personally pretty excited to see live, and they certainly didn’t disappoint, creating a laid back, chilled vibe in the upstairs venue with their delicately layered synths, which compliment the impressive vocals of front-woman Lucy Hill effortlessly.
Sea Girls took to the stage; the pre-set buzz of the packed out room was palpable. The band recently gained support from BBC Introducing and the majority of the audience you could tell were already fans of the fairly newly created outfit.
In the break after ‘Favourite Colour’, which features on their debut EP, a guy amongst the crowd screamed a few times asking for lead singer Henry’s favourite colour. Well we asked him after the show and can exclusively reveal that Henry’s favourite colour is black, though he likes pink too.
Finishing with ‘Call Me Out’, calls for one more song were ignored. We’ll have to wait for the fairly newly formed band to make some more music first! A new single is due to be released “around Christmas time”, and their next headline show will be on 1st February 2018 at London Bridge’s Omeara, which is owned by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett, tickets can be found here.
There’s always a risk that an artist you enjoy listening to doesn’t live up to their live billing but that was not the case for Sea Girls. Pretty impressive, good stage presence and well worth seeing if you ever get the opportunity to go to their shows. You’ll certainly find yourself bopping your head and shaking a leg – whether it be your own leg or someone else’s leg though, who knows.
