Alfie Templeman delivers indie greatness with mischievous flair on new track "Like An Animal"

15-year-old Alfie Templeman debuts his charming vocals with a slacker melody on new cut "Like An Animal".

The Bedfordshire teen hasn't even left school and he's already dropping an indie banger.

"Like An Animal" was made entirely in Templeman's bedroom. The talented and youthful musician is also a multi-instrumentalist, and had learned drums, guitar and bass by the time he started making tracks aged 13.

Templeman's track holds a mischevious tone with the slacker guitars, inspired by DIY musicians Mac DeMarco and Connan Mockasin.

The playful melody enhances Templeman's soulful charm, as his vocals are delivered with a hint of lo-fi as he meanders through layered vocals backed by a striking falsetto.

"Like An Animal" is the first single from his debut five-track EP Like An Animal, which also arrives today.

Speaking about the project Templeman explains, "Making music and meeting new people has been the best time of my life as I’ve realised who I want to be and how I want to sound, and this EP is a great introduction to the beginning of this journey. I never actually intended to put in really high falsetto singing until I thought it’d be funny to correlate with the lyrics - literally to shock the listener!"

Alfie Templeman's "Like An Animal" single and EP are out now via Chess Club.
