Greta Jaime flexes her pop credentials with her latest single "Computer Games"

It has been merely a year since the North London born and bred singer-songwriter shared her debut "Lost in Mexico", but the 18 year-old returns with sophistication and composure that belies her youth. It is the next installment in a triptych of releases that has solidified Greta Jaime as an exciting pop writer to earmark as one to watch.

Introduced by simple plucking and underpinned by sturdy beats, the track rises with the crest of Greta Jaime’s vocal, enveloping with a swell of lush synths and electronics that audibly shimmer.

“Your computer games have me running in both ways,” croons Jaime in a tone that is admirably understated in a chorus that could have easily been a boastful mirror to the end result. “Keeps me up, keeps me awake, overnight, all your mistakes.” With its alt-pop sentimentalities, it is a combination that wouldn’t go amiss if it were tucked into a Lorde live set.

"With ‘Computer Games’, I wanted to explore the idea of mind games,” explains Jaime of the inspiration behind the track. “[I wanted to] use the metaphor to talk about the intense necessity for communication that is sometimes unachievable, in a time with so much information and so many distractions."

"Computer Games" will be available everywhere on 29 June.
