Henry bares his whole soul with each guitar fueled ALT/POP tune, including the albums first release, Sick, the single which deals with his annoyance embodied in a rant about all the things that piss-him-off, in today’s world.
“It’s me in my bedroom at home ranting with my thoughts and going down the hole of being pissed–I am sick of everything – from things I used to love through to things that feel vacuous, like consuming and buying. All these emotions are piling up and it’s me just asking for a reset, a childish solution”. – says Camamile, of the track.
As described by Henry, Sick is a turning-point in the album. Although the lyrics may seem indulgent, in reality, Sick portrays the process of growing-up and a maturity that encompassed the band, throughout the creation of the album. The song ushered in a more broad perspective for the band and the process of writing it took Henry through an evolution of focusing on himself to caring for others, by the end of it’s creation. “I literally feel myself growing up throughout this song”. – says Camamile. Homesick was premiered by Arlo Parks as the ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1 and debuted live on the band’s frenetic mainstage slot at Latitude Festival, the band drop the album’s first taste with the infectiously honest track.
