We don’t really need to explain why Alfie Templeman’s bubblegum joy ‘Happiness in Liquid Form’ is essential for days like today (and the foreseeable future). In lockdown everything can seem a bit grey, so we’re bringing you this colourful number as our Track of the Day.
Templeman has been knocking around the scene for a little while now and has begun to really draw attention following 2019’s festival circuit, shining particularly at The Great Escape Festival.
Now, he’s moving up a few gears and bringing the kind of indie-pop richness we need in our veins right now. If you need blubber to keep you warm in the deep blue sea, you need some joyful bedroom pop to get you through the dark grey lockdown.
“‘Happiness…’ is the most colourful sugary disco-pop song I’ve put out so far,” he explains Templeman. “It came about so easily one day in the studio with Justin from The Vaccines and his right hand man Will and by the end of the day we knew we had something special on our hands. It’s a tough time for everyone right now so hope this brings a little happiness into people’s lives!”
It’s done the trick in the Far Out lockdown offices, as we can’t stop our feet shuffling and the brightness breaking through the clouds when this number’s spinning.
Listen below to Alfie Templeman’s ‘Happiness in Liquid Form’ and let the sunshine in.
