Since the release of their highly awaited debut full-length effort, Sun Structures, earlier this year, UK psychedelic up-and-comers Temples have been poised to take over the world, with the Australian front the first on their agenda. The band will kick off a string of debut tour dates early next month.
“In the most basic form, we write pop music, and it just so happens that we have a strong direction of sound in mind also. We like our music to transcend the idea of a band, and create a strong image with each song,” Temples bassist Thomas Warmsley told Music Feeds during a February Q&A.
With such grand ambitions, and the chops and will to achieve them, it’s no wonder the band has received praise from the likes of British indie icons like ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and Noel Gallagher, who named the young band as one of his favourite new up-and-coming groups.
