‘All I Want To Hear You Say’ is the latest release from London four-piece Sea Girls. The guys are known for their anthemic, incredibly catchy songs and this one is no exception to the rule.
The track’s narrative finds singer Henry Camamile expressing his frustration regarding a romantic interest and feeling as though himself and the person in question (with “a face made for TV”) are being pulled further apart by their respective lives: “Now we live in different worlds / ‘Cause I’m still working shifts while you’re putting on pearls.” However, the music keeps the song from seeming at all glum or defeated, with a full-on four to the floor kit punching through the mix just thirty seconds in. It’s pretty much irresistible from this point onwards, hitting both a sonic and melodic peak as Camamile confesses in the chorus, “I’m on your news feed twice a day / See you in the papers / I go to all your plays.”
Clocking in at just over three minutes, it’s a polished, well-crafted song that works on a surface level for pure sonic pleasure as well as taking on a scenario that is all too relatable for many. If Sea Girls are going for catchy and heartfelt music, they’re doing a brilliant job.
‘All I Want To Hear You Say’ is out now – available to Stream/Purchase here.
