Alfie Templeman returns with new single 'Eyes Wide Shut'

Following the rapturous response to his highly-praised debut album 'Mellow Moon' in 2022, Alfie Templeman has now returned to share a brand new single.

The new track 'Eyes Wide Shut' marks his first piece of new material in two years, and comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Soren Harrison.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “Eyes Wide Shut is an amalgamation of ruminations I faced on tour. My brain always seems to be on full volume after a show and I find it really difficult to wind down. The adrenaline used to turn sour pretty quick once you’d get back to your hotel that looked the same as every other hotel. Eyes Wide Shut helped me express those feelings and since we started playing it live I often use it as a reminder to go easy on myself. It deters the burn out.

“Musically, Eyes was the first song I wrote for the album. I knew I wanted to make big, weird pop songs. At the time I was rinsing Prince and Talking Heads a lot, lots of crazy staccato synth textures and nutty bass lines.”
