Review: The Seamonsters – Lost (and Found)

Words by Laura Whitters

Allow me to present to you The Seamonsters; the six piece Indie-pop girl-band set to take the Indie scene by storm with their debut single, ‘Lost (and Found)’. Hailing from Sheffield, the band is made up of Holly Thompson, Naomi Mann, Ciara Hurding, Ella Taylor, Lauren Smith and Tassie Droninski. With an impressive list of support slots and headline gigs to their name, the band are sure to be touring soon, so watch out.

‘Lost (and Found)’ is an impressive debut single – catchy, and absolutely full of personality!  The song carries classic characteristics of Indie music, with rhythmic drumming, strong riffs and delicate guitar lines woven through. Refusing to simply stick to one genre, ‘The Seamonsters’ have created a sound that’d be best described as Indie Pop-Rock with underlying hints of psychedelia (and a bit of glitter). Brilliant vocals provide a tone reminiscent of 80s pop, furthering the creation of a unique sound. With lyrics that are simultaneously simple and brilliant, this song is set to be a hit.

The Seamonsters have evidently drawn inspiration from/ have a sound similar to the likes of Wolf Alice, The Cure, Anteros and Pale Waves. But as many bands struggle to do, The Seamonsters have managed to draw brilliance from other artists without becoming near carbon copies, they’ve managed to create an appealing sound, whilst remaining unique.

‘Lost (and Found)’ is a brilliant debut and hopefully an indicator of things to come. The Seamonsters have crafted the perfect testament to summer feeling, where feel-good pop meets Indie values, showing the makings of an amazing band!

‘Lost (and Found)’ is available today (14th April) and the music video will premiere on LFM at 7pm this evening.
