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’s explained the processes behind the EP stating that: “There’s a lot of RnB and Indie coming together in this record. I wanted to experiment a little more with groovy drum beats and ‘90s hip hop synths while keeping the indie slacker vibe of my first EP.”
This year has been a hectic one for Alfie, not only is he leaving school, but he’s made his first ever London appearance back in April, he’s releasing this EP and he’s midway through a summer full of festival appearances.
