Big in 2019: The Seamonsters

Who: The Seamonsters – Naomi Mann (lead vocals), Lauren Smith (bass/backing vocals), Holly Thompson (lead guitar), Tassie Drobinski (rhythm guitar), Ella Taylor (keyboard) and Ciara Hurding (drums).

What genre: Indie-glitter

When did they start: 2013

Where: The Seamonsters are from Sheffield, UK.

Catch them live:  
Night & Day Café, Manchester – 25.01
Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough – 02.03

Why: Driven by 80’s synth, the band has seen themselves headline shows in their hometown and across the UK and support the likes of Drenge and Hinds. They have taken a niche era of music as inspiration and twisted it into something fresh and exciting.

FUN FACT: “At a gig in Liverpool, Ciara’s drum stick broke and she couldn’t reach for another in time so hit the snare with her fist.”
