Live: SEA GIRLS // O2 Forum Kentish Town, London
Midway through an impressive string of sold out shows on their biggest ever headline tour, Sea Girls stopped by the O2 Forum in Kentish Town for an unforgettable night.
The indie rock quartet have yet to release an album, but needlessly and effortlessly proved that their three EPs and abundance of singles were more than enough to enchant the 2300-strong crowd. We can only imagine how it feels to walk onto the stage to the chants of your name, but fortunately for Sea Girls, they didn’t have to imagine. The echoes of “Sea Girls” roared through the venue, as if anyone needed a reminder of who was about to grace the stage.
Opening with new single Violet, the set was almost relentless, each song as energetic as the last. Frontman Henry Camamile was no stranger to being a part of the crowd, joining them for several songs including the unreleased Forever, which saw the venue lit by nothing but phone lights. For Damage Done, which followed shortly after, Camamile ventured to the balcony seating area, much to the delight of the unsuspecting fans. Finishing strong was Eat Me Whole sandwiched between Call Me Out and Adored, during which Henry once again found himself in (or rather, on) the familiar arms of the crowd.
Our night with Sea Girls was riveting and while we wish it felt less short-lived, there’s a part of us they’ll take away forever.
