Sea Girls are moving ‘Closer’ to the perfect indie banger with their latest single

The upstart's latest effort comes as part of a summer of festival fun.

Sea Girls have dropped a brand new track, and if you’re a fan of Big Indie Bangers, you’re in luck.

Titled ‘Closer’, the four piece’s latest single takes every trick from the ‘anthemic’ playbook – from elastic band guitar lines to an S-Club-Party-tastic whoop whoop section. It works, too. Well done, Sea Girls.

Speaking of the track, guitarist Rory Young says; “The song came together in a backwards fashion in a hotel after our debut European gig in Barcelona. It was originally written as an electronic track about being far away. Replacing the synths with guitars back in London gave the track an absolute new lease of life”

The song comes ahead of a huge summer of festivals, with Benicassim Festival, Truck Festival, Reading & Leeds Festival, TRNSMT, Tramlines, Boardmasters, Electric Picnic and Y Not Festival still to come.

With that done, they’ll head out on their own UK tour, which includes a date at London’s Kentish Town Forum. You can check out the dates after the jump, and listen to ‘Closer’ below.
