Alfie Templeman is on the cover of this month's Dork, out now

It’s no secret to anyone that we have favourites. One such golden boy is young Alfie Templeman. First appearing on our pages at the tender age of 16, one could legitimately say we’ve seen him grow up. Still a few months short of the big 1-8, he’s fast becoming indie’s new boy wonder.

With 4 EPs down, and a new single out now (it's called 'Forever Isn't Long Enough', and it's AMAZING), he’s giving off the kind of bright, ultra-prolific energy which screams future Dork icon from the rooftops. That’s why we’re delighted to bring him to our - or any other - cover for the first time. From what we’ve heard, it won’t be the last.

Elsewhere this month, we've got everything from IDLES - who are about to drop a very IDLES-y new album 'Ultra Mono' and have 'things to say', to LANY, an alt-pop sensation rediscovering a sense of home and belonging. There's also the sensational Saweetie, zeitgeisty bop-merchant Gus Dapperton, brilliant upstarts Working Men's Club, fantastic Fenne Lily *and* Dork's Big K-pop Guide, making sure you're up to speed on everything you need to be a good and loyal stan.

In Hype we've got introductions to the likes of Griff, Jawny, A.Swayze & The Ghosts, Ailbhe Reddy and Omega Sapien. Add to that Girl In Red, PVRIS, Will Butler, Sinead O'Brien judging the poetry of other 'music types' (yes, including our cover star) and much more, and it's - yep, you got it - another packed issue.
