Alf Service

From: London, England


alfie (not to be confused with the under achieving Manchester indie rockers from the late 1990s who disbanded before he was even born) is 20. According to his intriguing, and grammatically insouciant bio he comes from south london, he grew up under a rock and he makes music inspired by ravel's quartet en fa majeur, sputnik, beethoven's symphony 4, deepwater horizon, marching bands, graveyard orbits, shoegazing & uk bass music. 

His first and apparently only song to date is i have nothing to say (he doesn't like capital letters does our alfie) which sounds like a skittishly dancey Neil Hannon with his finger on the pulse of pop music in the age of social media. It's an ironic title because our alfie clearly does have a lot to say and hopefully he'll be saying it with a few more little gems like his debut track. 

File under promising.
