Temples were and continue being one of pop psychedelia great promises. As if blessed by the halo and grace of Tame Impala, the formation lead by James Edward Bagshaw debuted with a brilliant Sun Structures (Heavenly Records / Pias, 2014). An album that showed British band’s sound: luminous melodies, rhythms inspired by the sixties and clear references of neo-psychedelia. Despite having set the bar very high, his return four years later with Volcano (Heavenly Records / Pias, 2017) exceeded all expectations. A second album that strengthened his sound by adding a good dose of synthesizers and showed that their excellent debut was not a stroke of luck.
Temples have announced details of a new album. The now-trio will release ‘Hot Motion’, their third full-length and follow-up to 2017’s ‘Volcano’ on 27th September. They’ve also shared the title track from the album, about “the tensions of desire, dreams and nightmares,” alongside a video. Very soon at Vida Festival.
