Sea Girls put their own touch to ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’

Sea Girls have plenty of their own self-penned wonders in the bag, but for a rare change they have taken on another artist's work.

In this case it's an emotive cover of the Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson's 2018 hit ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’, which singer Henry Camamile was inspired to cover due to its impeccable storytelling -  himself being driven by an obsession for writing lyrics and a love of brilliant songwriters including the likes of Arcade Fire and Bloc Party, to Amy Winehouse and Vampire Weekend.

“The first time I heard it was when we were on our tour bus driving through Belgium in the middle of the night to play a festival in Germany the next day," he relates. "I couldn't stop playing it for the next 24 hours. It just sounds like a classic. The lyrics are just infectious. 'We live and die by pretty lies' tells a great story, you know?”
