Listen to Alfie Templeman’s new song ‘Stop Thinking (About Me)’

The youngster is currently on tour with Chess Club labelmates Sundara Karma.

Chess Club signing Alfie Templeman is currently on a UK tour supporting labelmates Sundara Karma, and has shared a new song.

‘Stop Thinking (About Me)’ follows last year’s ‘Like An Animal’ EP.

“It’s quite an angry track, both musically and lyrically,” he says of the new track.

“I was really interested in something a bit more fierce, more upbeat and R&B oriented. A lot of my previous song lyrics are about being disillusioned and anxious about things such as relationships going wrong so I decided to pair this very angsty song with disheartened lyrics, as if I were fed up of being messed around with by someone I thought I was in love with.”
