Album Review: Homesick by Sea Girls
Band: Sea Girls
Sea Girls’ second studio album, Homesick, is a captivating work of vulnerability. With each track, the band interweaves a sense of familiarity that glows even brighter with the touch of nostalgia. This band deserves much more recognition than they currently receive, and Homesick proves why.
Right from the opening notes of “Hometown,” Sea Girls take listeners on a journey that explores the highs and lows of growing up. The album boasts a consistent energy of catchy hooks and driving beats. With lyrics featuring “You’ll stay there/ And we’ll move on/ You’ll never learn the words to my new songs/ I remember you always.”
But it’s the vulnerability in the lyrics that truly stands out. This is especially true for track seven, “Lucky,” “If my brother was dreaming or my father was selfish/ Would I be a big man or a boy who was helpless?”
Homesick is an album that demands to be experienced from start to finish. Each track builds upon the last, creating a cohesive and emotionally charged journey that will leave you feeling like you’ve been on a wild rollercoaster ride. Sea Girls have outdone themselves with this album, cementing their place as a band to watch in the coming years.
If you’re a fan of indie rock with heart and soul, then Homesick is an album you cannot miss. Sea Girls have crafted something remarkable with this record, showcasing their exceptional talent and artistry. Don’t sleep on this band – they’re destined for greatness, and this is just the beginning.
