RIYL: The Beatles, Oasis, Tame Impala
Label: Heavenly Recordings
The Gallagher-approved, sunny psych rockÂ 4-piece from Kettering is back with Volcano, their sophomore follow-up to the globally-praised classic debutÂ Sun Structures, a distinct voice in the massiveÂ neo-psych movement of the past few years. Â While many bands followed the lofi aesthetic in the school of The Velvet Underground, Temples led a UK movement of studio professionalism with one foot in the door of post-NirvanaÂ Brit Pop and the other in early 70s glammed-out T-Rextacy. Â Their music has a psych pulse, but the rhythms swing and gyrateÂ with pop star confidence. Â It’s one big party, and everyone from Donovan toÂ The Byrds to Marc Bolan to Neu! to Oasis are invited.
Volcano looks to be embracing some synth influences, but it’s still got that Temples formula that we’ve all fallen in love with. Â Check out first single Certainty below and grab one of the 300Â yellow vinyl variants from Heavenly RecordingsÂ after the ‘buy’ link. Â Remember, HeavenlyÂ is a UK label, so all American buyers will see that reflected in their shipping price. Â There is also a neon orange variant that you can grab from Rough Trade and some other online UK distros.
Temples follow up their critically debut 2014 album 'Sun Structures' with 'Volcano.'
The first 300 pre-orders will receive a limited run of yellow coloured vinyl. Once these have sold out it will state on the site that black vinyl will be available
