After the release of their incredible single ‘Blackjack’, Dantevilles headed to the The Deaf Institute in Manchester to support Sea Girls. A Thursday night is never an easy night to play, and starting your set at 8pm certainly doesn’t help; yet Dantevilles managed to fill the venue for their support slot with dancing and grooving that many others couldn’t create.

Dantevilles performance was packed with songs that instantly make your body groove and shake to their infectious riffs and iconic harmonies. Dantevilles vocals are what put them a step above anybody else and they were perfectly in tune as they reverberated around The Deaf Institute, warming the crowd up before the Sea Girls took the stage.

After an unnecessarily long wait, Sea Girls bounced onto the stage to a crammed venue full of fans adorning their t-shirts. Sea Girls performance was full of energy and excitement with the crowd bouncing around and sitting on each others shoulders and swaying along to Sea Girls catchy pop music. Frontman Henry Camamile got the crowd going from the first note, he jumped off stage and walked through the audience singing before standing on top of the bar, lit by the disco ball shining around the room. Camamile took another dive into the crowd, this time adorning his guitar whilst crowd surfing before coming back on for an encore. The encore was evidently unplanned and was a reaction to the excitement of the crowd, which was referred to as “the best of the tour”. Sea Girls played ‘Call Me Out’ again in their encore, and it was received even better than the first time by audience.
