'Little Games' is the debut single from The Adelines.
The track is a bittersweet coming of age tale, recounted with a spirited frankness that epitimises the Welsh quartet’s sound. Where the tom-boyish vocals of lead singer, Jen, soar aloft over warped pop choruses that recall The Pains of Being Pure At Heart fused with the resonant wall-of-sound guitars of British Sea Power.
If this wasn’t enough, accompanying the release single is an excellent remix by Rob from Does It Offend You, Yeah?
ADAM WALTON, BBC RADIO WALES - “LOVELY!”
CRAIG EVANS, BRFM 95.6 - “The sound The Adelines created was so powerful it blew me away!"
RUTH BARNES, FRESHONTHENET.CO.UK
- "Expect to hear this on a TV show near you soon: Hollyoaks? Lip Service? Could soundtrack an angsty montage brilliantly."
WE TALK, YOU DIE - "an insistingly catchy debut that resonates on a deeper level than another jangly indie-pop song"
ANOMNOM - "Overlapping, soft yet distorted guitars; a chorus with a mighty hook; tom-boyish vocals; honest lyrics. The Adelines have me on their side!"
SOUTH WALES SOUNDS - "As far as impeccable introductions are concerned, the track covers all the criteria; inviting, intriguing and more imperatively, it is memorable."
