Following their recent sold-out tour of Australia, Temples release ‘Keep In The Dark’, the latest single from their debut album, ‘Sun Structures’. Bearing all the hallmarks of the Temples sound, ‘Keep In The Dark’ is a mix of scuzzy glam stomp, dreamy, 12-string-drenched folk-rock and droning psych.
The 12-track album was self-produced by the band’s James Bagshaw and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer. The album was recorded at home, in the box-room of James’s house in Kettering, an end terrace with a blessedly forgiving neighbour. “I’m always apologising to him for the noise, but he says, ‘It’s not noise, it’s music,’” says James. The band aim for Jack Nietzche production on a DIY budget – and succeed. “It’s similar to Joe Meek – he used to record vocals in his bathroom in his flat on Holloway Road,” says Tom. “The way I see it, there aren’t any limitations anymore,” says James. “If you know what you want to achieve, there’s always a way around it.”
The band recently wrapped up an East Coast tour of Australia playing to sold-out venues in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
