Alfie – HY-Brasil EP (Out Now) Review What were you doing between the ages of 16-18? I know I was still trying to work out how to impress girls, what my best position on the football pitch was and whether a Brit Pop fringe was a good look, it wasn't, I most certainly wasnt writing highly accomplished electronic music that belied my years, something Alfie has been doing since he could power up the family PC.
