Sea Girls - Falling Apart

Sea Girls
Falling Apart

Get ready for itchy eyes as Sea Girls drop their new heartache single ‘Falling Apart’. As we fall out the back of festival season and back to playing in music venues, this is the perfect end-of-summer bittersweet remedy.

Musically, this track lands in a sweet spot where Foals meets The 1975 and plays a song by The Killers. It’s melodic, shimmering, and wondrously anthemic. The keys just float there like mist with the near-disco beat and vocal silhouetted amid the grey and throwing long shadows. We then hit the guitar, which is jagged and rhythmic, the drums dropping to a snare-beat and a touch of lead. This isn’t your traditional guitar-band arrangement, it is full of oddities.

The general gist of the song is that Adrianna has left our protagonist and gone overseas to seek out fame, leaving a heavy feeling of ‘Damn beautiful skies, When there’s rain in my eyes and you’re gone, but I’m still holding on!”

The chorus lines, all starting with ‘damn‘ provides a big chorus hook that’s as much rhythm as it is melody. This is a technique they employed well in ‘Hometown’ with the ‘always’ line-endings, but here it’s a metaphorical capital letter rather than a full-stop.

This is fine guitar emo-pop that brings the feels.
