“It’s like, AHHH!!’” Alfie Templeman told us about his upcoming EP back in August. “It’s so amazing! It’s really funky, like, REALLY funky. I can’t even tell you how funky it is! Some of it’s indie, but some of it’s really disco/R&B/pop vibes. The best way to describe it is like summer pop music for someone who’s depressed in winter. I’m really excited, I’m mega excited.”
Now giving us a few more details (aside from it being, like, really funky), Alfie’s shared that his new EP - the follow-up to debut ‘Like An Animal’ and ‘Sunday Morning Cereal’ - will be called ‘Don’t Go Wasting Time’ and is set to land on 15th November via Chess Club Records.
Sharing the title track today too, Alfie explains: “‘Don’t Go Wasting Time’ is a track about breakups and trying to stop yourself from missing someone. The track has a really pretty melody I came up with years ago, it actually started off as a punk song and gained a new title this year when I dug it up. I’ve never been more over the moon with a finished product as much as I have with Don’t Go Wasting Time. Everything on the EP fits like a glove, every song has a purpose and a different story. Everything on this record is what I’ve always wanted to achieve.”
