'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?

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."

The Adelines Swansea, UK

The Adelines are a guitar-driven quartet comprising Jennie Morris on vocals and guitar, Anton Dodwell on guitar, Eddie Russell on bass and Ray Thomas on drums. Formed in 2011 and named after their next door neighbour's cat, they cut their teeth playing house parties in Swansea and pricked ears with their tom-boyish vocals, jangly reverb-guitars and warped pop sensibilities. ... more

Track Name: Little Games
Don’t say another word
No don’t you say another word
I’ve got you all
Got you all figured out
Come with me
Come with me
I’ll take you somewhere we can be alone
Take my hand
Take my hand
Let’s get out of here
This place has nothing more to give
I’ll take you home
Take you home
It seems the only place to go for us lovers

Just trying to make sense
Just trying to make sense of your little games

Say the word. Say the word
Just say the word and I will go
But don’t expect me to fall over my feet
Trying to get us both to meet again
You took my hand
Took my hand
You can’t say you didn’t know where we were going to go
I took you home
Took you home
It seemed the only place to go for us lovers

Just trying to make sense
Just trying to make sense of your little games
