THE B-SIDE
Alfie Templeman (AWAL)
4/28/20

WHAT IT IS: Growing up in a family of musicians, multi-instrumentalist Aflie Templeman got his start in music early, picking up the guitar at just eight years old. Entirely self-taught, the now-17-year-old from Bedfordshire, U.K., concocts earworms reminiscent of a punk-inclined Rex Orange Country, with a sensibility akin to Declan McKenna. Paying homage to DIY heroes like Steve Lacey, Kevin Parker and Mac Demarco, Templeman continues to push the envelope with his self-produced yet mature style. His cheek innocence and overall musicality position him to become a true artists’ artist.
