The uber-talented Alfie Templeman has shared another excellent single. ‘Obvious Guy’ is another step up for the younger singer-songwriter – it’s a third taste of his forthcoming EP Happiness In Liquid Form.
Noodling funk guitars and a disco groove make this indie tune a real party starter – but an undercurrent of dark melancholy keeps things contemporary. No matter what he experiments with, Templeman never seems to miss.

16-year-old Alfie Templeman has revealed his second EP ‘Sunday Morning Cereal’ via Chess Club Records.
The EP follows popular singles ‘Like An Animal’ and ‘Stop Thinking (About Me)’ – a track that he’s also just released a video for, shot entirely on an iPhone as part of Apple’s new #shotoniphone campaign (watch below).
‘Sunday Morning Cereal’ was completely self-produced in his bedroom at home in Carlton, he plays every instrument heard himself apart from the trumpets heard on ‘Busy’, which were provided by his 12-year-old sister. The musical talent is obvs in the genes.
Alfie Templeman’s bedroom is painted orange, plastered with posters and cluttered with several instruments. The 15-year-old Templeman is studying for his GCSEs, and he has perhaps the ultimate distraction. Full of soft, slow indie-pop and chunky choruses, his debut EP, Like An Animal, has just come out on Chess Club Records, and music takes up his every moment.
He sounds like he wants to whoop with joy, and you can’t blame him. Music has filled Templeman’s head since he can remember, and he’s been making songs alone in his bedroom for the past few years, in the same intimate fashion as his favourite songwriters, from Neil Young to Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker.
