The Seamonsters are a six-piece, indie-techno-pop, all girl band from Sheffield. They were kind enough to chat to me after releasing their second music video.
How did you all meet, and when did you decide to form?
We all went to a drama group together and decided it would be fun to start a band!
Who would you say influenced you the most as a band?
We all have quite varied music taste but we listen to bands like the wombats for inspiration.
How would you describe your sound?
Indie and glitter!
We’ve seen your YouTube channel (great videos by the way!) but is your music available on any other platforms?
Thankyou! Yeh, we’ve got four songs on soundcloud, two of which there’s videos for.
Can we expect any more releases from you in 2016?
Hopefully! We’re recording in summer!
Have you got any gigs coming up in the near future?
We’re playing at tramlines in Sheffield which will be really good and then we have a few more Sheffield dates after summer. Hopefully we’ll be able to play out of Sheffield soon as well!
What’s it like being in an all girl band when it’s something we rarely see in this industry?
It’s pretty cool actually because there’s hardly any all-girl bands and people seem to expect us to be like little mix or something but then they hear and they’re shocked. We get so many people saying they wish there we more all female bands like us. We’ve actually found it to be more of an advantage to us than a problem as it makes us stand out.
Have you gigged much outside Sheffield?
Not yet but hopefully we can soon!
Favourite album of the last 5 years?
Suck it and see – Arctic monkeys
Glitterbug – The Wombats
Stomach Aches – Frnkiero and the Cellabration
Who would be your dream band to support on tour?
Wolf Alice would be really cool or Pale Waves!
If you could play any venue in the world, where would it be?
Rough Trade in New York would be cool or The Roxy, on the sunset strip, LA.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
I’d be invisible and know everything about everyone or turn everything into chocolate.
Have you got any pets?
Two cats, a dog, a bearded dragon and a corn snake.
Don’t forget, The Seamonsters will be playing Tramlines in Sheffield, so if you happen to be over that way, make sure to go and check them out!
