Music by Bergman: Alfie Templeman

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.

Best Covers: Theo Impala ‘Only You’

Lately, the cosmopolitan New York rapper Theophilus London and the Tame Impala main man Kevin Parker have been putting in a lot of work together. They’re calling their project Theo Impala, and  they dropped three new songs (one of which features Ariel Pink) on Beats 1 Radio. They unveil the video for “Only You,” their faithfully slick cover of a 1984 synth-disco track from the Nigerian musician Steve Monite.
