Multi-talented musician, and serial entrepreneur, 'G FrSH', secures his first DiSCOVERY award, which is delivered in the form of the 'Project Of The Week'; this accolade is credited to G FrSH's angelic album - 'Alfie'.
Released all the way back in 2014, the astounding sounds of 'Alfie' hit a strong field of listeners for 6, however, it should've disturbed London and beyond more than it did. For this reason, we wanted to take you back, mystify you with our words, and ensure that Alfie's recognition is right this time; the hardest part will be doing this immense body of work justice.
'Alfie' penetrated a receptive market which was warmed by G FrSH's earlier released bodies of work - 'Legoman - Wheres My Brick' (2010), and 'Legoman II - Wheres My Brick...' (2013). The formerly mentioned projects served as building blocks for G FrSH's most complete, polished piece of work - 'Alfie', which would later become the final entry in G FrSH's project portfolio.
Consisting of a modest 11 tracks, 'Alfie' is far from extensive in terms of song volume, however, it is certainly extensive from an audio perspective. What is potentially most impressive about 'Alfie' is the vast variety of vibes that have been carefully coaxed into just 11 pieces of music. This is precise procurement, and the effects are outstanding.
On one side of the 'Alfie' vinyl, you have upbeat, infectious and impulsive anthems like 'Mistify' (Ft Thabo), and on the other, emotion enhancing, delicately delivered melodies such as 'Sometimes' (Ft Tinie Tempah). There is truly 'something for everyone' on 'Alfie', which will certainly be a contributing factor to the 'classic' stamp; this is a certification that must be on the horizon.
Having 'something for everyone' ensures that an album appeals to each individual in segments; this said, it also often has the unfortunate habit of dividing an audience. 'Alfie' has the darlin' attributes of both of these scenarios, but we are, as always, keen to detail our individual track ratings. Please see below:
Right This Time - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Too Long - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Giving to You (Ft. Tanika) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Mystify (Ft. Thabo) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Darlin' (Ft. Sonny Reeves) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Let's Drink (Ft. Sonny Reeves) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Hardest Part (Ft. Sonny Reeves) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Falling High (Ft. Sonny Reeves) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Sometimes (Ft. Tinie Tempah) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Close My Eyes (Ft. Arrows Down) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Take Me Back (Ft. Laura Wolfie) - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Average rating - 4.4 / 5
Track Of The Project - 'Close My Eyes' (Ft. Arrows Down)
As is evident from the star ratings listed above, we could've allocated virtually any of the 11 'Alfie' tracks as our 'Track Of The Project', however, 'Close My Eyes' stands out from an impressive crowd, and takes the win as a result.
There are two main stories poetically delivered throughout 'Close My Eyes'. Firstly, the stressful struggle of being a father, a musician, and having a life on the street; secondly, G FrSH's 13 year old cousin going to jail after attempting to loot a civilian. This attempted robbery was prompted by a desire for materialistic goods - goods that are simply unobtainable for many youths without the support of crime.
The hard-hitting, highly relatable messages deciphered above are enough to secure the 'Track Of The Project' for us, but what do you think? Please do comment below, or of course on any of our social media platforms.
