Listening Party: G FrSH - ‘Alfie’ EP
We headed down to the Disturbing London HQ for a listening session...
‘To me, the 'Sleeping Cupid' represents how much decadence there is today,’ G FrSH explains with a projection of Caravaggio's Sleeping Cupid painting behind him, which is the artwork for his soon-to-be released EP entitled ‘Alfie’, released Monday August 11.
The listening party was held in an all-white but dimly lit room at Disturbing London HQ. G FrSH unveiled all of the tracks from the EP to a room full of fans, peers and press, with Skepta and Krept and Konan also in attendance to show support. The rapper made sure to emphasize that this particular body of work is inspired mainly by different relationships in his life and he is looking to cater to his female fans.
‘Now you're sitting on Insta, trying to turn likes into love...’ G FrSH said this was his favourite line from the track titled ‘Too Long’, a song about trying to get a former lover's attention. With stand out songs like ‘Mystify’ and ‘Darling’ set to be fan favourites and potential radio singles, ‘Alfie’ is solid body work, mainly produced by Sonny Reeves with a fair number of features and heartfelt songs that the women will appreciate.
