Sea Girls take to Main Stage West with an added shot of adrenaline coursing through their veins. When they made their Main Stage bow in 2021, it was a band taking that rightful step into the big leagues. Today, they embrace it like a playground springboarding to something even higher.
With swagger by the bucketloads, frontman Henry Camomile commands the stage from the first note – diving into the front row for opener ‘Damage Done’ and refusing to let go. Cuts like ‘Ready For More’, ‘Sick’, ‘Call Me Out’ and ‘All I Want To Hear You Say’ were born for moments like this – big crowds and big stages under sunny skies. Mosh pits form, songs are screamed back, flares fill up the sky and even tears are shed for a complete takeover of the Main Stage in every sense of the word.
That ambition and hunger is perfectly captured with new track ‘Weekends And Workdays’ – a fiery blast of indie-rock that’s destined to kickstart a roaring next chapter. Judging by the size and scale of today, it’s an ambition welcomed with open arms. The denim era? Whatever you want to call it, its opening ceremony today points to it being big.
