The sweetness of 90s hip-hop and preservatives

16-year-old UK artist Alfie Templeman wasn’t born in the 90s, but he manages to pull the nostalgic springs of every 90s baby with his latest single “Sunday Morning Cereal.” It’s a semi-retro indietronica piece that draws influences from 90s hip-hop sound that transports you to the lazy weekend morning when you were munching on delicious preservatives while watching cartoons. Nowadays you’re pretty much doing the same except there’s a glass of wine with it and you just call it ‘brunch’ to sound more gourmet and adult-ish:

“While I was writing and recording ‘Sunday Morning Cereal’, I’d been listening to a lot of ‘90s hip hop records like 2001 by Dr Dre and started to take influence from those drum grooves and exotic synth sounds. It’s definitely a different sounding record than my usual guitar based tracks.” shared Alfie.

“Sunday Morning Cereal” is the title track of Alfie’s upcoming EP, which will be out on June 21 via Chess Club Records. Catch Alfie live this summer as he’ll be playing some shows and fest:
