Temples, a band from the English Midlands, has discovered the psychedelic pop genre for itself and is remodeling it according to its own ideas. There are references from ABBA to Tame Impala and mix under frontman James Bagshaw's velvety, discreetly echoing vocals, clanging drums and complex harmonic arcs.
Noel Gallagher already called Temples the best newband in the United Kingdom. That was a year before the release of their debut album, „Sun Structures“, on which, according to Rolling Stone Magazine, there is not a single bad song. With this album they revived the psychedelic rock sound of the 1960s - somewhere between The Beatles and The Byrds.
Before the pandemic, the band played all the big name festivals like Glastonbury, Lollapalooza or Primavera Sound. Now they are back and bring both the old hits and a new album, which will be released in April 2023, on tour.
