The Seamonsters are an indie glitter band from Sheffield, driven by 80s inspired synths and angelic vocals. Comprising of Naomi Mann, Holly Thompson, Tassie Drobinski, Lauren Smith, Ella Taylor and Ciara Hurding; the six 18 and 19 year olds are influenced by Pulp, Altered Images and Orange Juice along with more recent indie artists like Black Honey and The Wombats, creating catchy songs for dreamy dance floors. Their debut single ‘Lost (and Found)’ created a social media buzz around the band and formed an interest in what was to come. Following this The Seamonsters sound was described by platforms such as the popular music blog Punktastic as “undeniably charming indie music” and by We the Germs blog as having “emotion packed fantastic guitar lines and an all-round summery feeling”.
The Seamonsters have recently played alongside VANT, Anteros, Kate Nash, Bill Ryder-Jones and The Undertones and hope to continue to spread glitter across the country. The band’s genre has been dubbed as ‘indie glitter’ because of their love for all things shiny and the glittery keyboards that float across their songs. The second and third singles released by The Seamonsters entitled ‘Wonderland’ and ‘Max and Archie’ have reached the band out to an even bigger audience with independent and vastly different music videos, as well as bold artwork, designed by themselves – the band’s creativity shines out through more than just their music. The Seamonsters run all their own social media, as well as doing the majority of their videos and photos themselves, they also say: “We love posting out asking if anyone wants to do a photoshoot with us or getting fans involved in our music videos and live performance where possible.
