“Why Won't You Admit” by Sea Girls – A Song Feature
“Why Won't You Admit” has a song structure that is tailored for raising the energy level in a festival setting, and Sea Girls will put it on display during at least eight 2020 European festivals. The single is straightforward powerful for two minutes before undergoing a succession of gear shifts. When “Why Won't You Admit” reenters its chorus of questions regarding admitting being in love, the gig-goers will likely be eager to add their voices to the questioning.
The “gear shifting” segment is our preferred portion of “Why Won't You Admit.” It begins slightly beyond the two-minute mark, with a transition from power vocals to more melodic harmonization. Interestingly, the vocals remain consistent while the instrumentation crescendos to a sudden shift at 2:30, when the lead vocals and a sparse guitar (bass) take the song to the energetic chorus of question.
Sea Girls are a UK band comprising Henry Camamile (vocals, guitar), Rory Young (guitar), Andrew Dawson (bass), and Oli Khan (drums). “Why Won't You Admit” is a single on their EP “Under Exit Lights.” When talking about the EP, Henry explained:
“The lyrics for these songs draw their soul from my life of late nights and the mornings after - about being young and going out a lot. It involves dark thoughts, anxiety, but ends in hope, positivity and optimism.”
Last year saw the band playing their debut shows in the U.S. with packed shows in both New York City and Los Angeles. 2020 will see their return this side of the Atlantic Seeing Sea Girls live gives you 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. Emblazoned front and centre it’s what Sea Girls burst and pulse with – a band aiming first and foremost at being the sing-a-long torch bearers for a whole new generation.

From an Indie Obsessive post in August 2019:
“Closer” features quick-twitch, upper-frequency guitars, then finishes with a more sustained, more powerful and lower pitched sound. The power is first felt at 2:16. The source of the “sound” may be a synth, but we are hopeful that Sea Girls uses a guitar, particularly since they are a guitar band.
