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.
Their sunshine-drenched songs paint an intimate portrait of coming of age and late night dalliances, combining pop choruses with resonant wall-of-sound guitars and bittersweet lyrics that walk a tightrope between naiveté and spirited frankness. Favourable comparisons have been made variously to Juliana Hatfield, The Vaccines and Throwing Muses - though the band state that they draw their influences "from life".
