Fresh off the back of their Under Exit Lights EP, Sea Girls are treating us with even more new music, starting with new single Do You Really Wanna Know? The new single arrives alongside the announcement of the band’s debut album, Open Up Your Head, out August 14th via Polydor Records.

With bragging rights as the next generation of British sing-along maestros, Sea Girls seem under no pressure to release another anthemic tune to their repertoire. Do You Really Wanna Know? is a 3 minute bop about spoiling precious moments with questions.

One of their more upbeat tunes, it’s chorus has a firm boyband feel and a rhythm reminiscent of an obscure 90’s TV show credits which I can’t quite place. It doesn’t feel like the instant classic some of their older songs have upon release, yet Caville’s vocals carry enough power that you can already hear this being sung back to them during one of their raucous live shows.

One thing is certain, Sea Girls have found the magic potion for writing feel-good indie pop with incessantly catchy choruses and don’t intend stopping any time soon. For this reason, we’re psyched for the release of their long-awaited debut album Open Up Your Head in August.

Thousands upon thousands of fans gathered in one space with hands aloft, screaming along to every word and their body shaking with adrenaline as track after track hits them like a tidal wave. That feeling, of being wrapped up in a band who seize the euphoric and turn it into something vital and real in front of your eyes, that feeling is what makes a band special. Emblazoned front and centre, it’s what Sea Girls burst and pulse with – a band aiming first and foremost at being the torch-bearing sing-a-long for a whole new generation and a band trading, at its core, in what may seem the simplest of sciences. Turn everything up a notch, write anthems to throw yourselves into and be that soundtrack for the best nights of people’s lives.”
