For such a relatively small place, the sheer quality and quantity of music with a Welsh origin over the past 12 months, has utterly been astounding.
With so much going on across the Irish Sea, some stuff will inevitably fall between the cracks, thankfully the festive period allowed for a reacquainting with these (and many others). As was the case with Swansea four piece The Adelines, purveyors of charming, carefree, easy on the ear and exquisite indie-pop. Their single ‘Alleyways’ is an absolute gem, capturing all the aforementioned attributes in just over three minutes. Morris’s honeyed, alluring vocals are an undoubted draw to this dreamy number, as guitars chime underneath woozy, laid back harmonies, charming melodies and addictive, flourishing choruses. An absolutely fabulous slice of indie-pop to brighten up even the darkest of days.
Let’s hope there’s plenty more to come this year from The Adelines, and that this time I’m paying full attention.
