CRITIC REVIEWS

Dork
Emotions bubble beneath the surface, elevating what might sound like breezy songs to higher plains, but even those inward moments aren’t allowed to become too morose or over-thought.

Record Collector

Variously recalling Air, Jamiroquai and Basement Jaxx, Mellow Moon amounts to one of the best collections of summery pop in ages.

Gigwise
Unafraid to push boundaries and unphased by industry pressures, this collection of tracks is packed with chunky bass and layers upon layers of atmospheric electronica that has compacted into a solid nuanced foundation for Alfie to grow and build upon as he goes forward.

Alfie Templeman's previous work was one of the best of the last year for me, the way I discovered him and started liking his work.

Mellow Moon is a bigger and broader step than its predecessor, with 14 songs that range from the simplest pop rock to different mixes of pop with other genres such as dance, funk, synth, disco, jazz, indie, among others, it could say it as the most pop album I've heard in years.
