Temples

  • United Kingdom
  • Psychedelic wonder

Once every decade, the end of rock is nigh. We are told that it is a style of music belonging to another age, and that no new groups will be able to recreate the passion of the past. And yet, once every decade, it rises from its own ashes, phoenix-like. In the psychedelic vein, Temples is one of the most beautiful examples of this. Inspired by the rock music of the sixties and seventies, the four Englishmen have resuscitated sublime guitar loops, soaring vocals high in reverb and a mastery of synths in a finely perfected vintage ambiance. In the purest tradition of Pink Floyd from the Syd Barrett period, a sumptuous invitation to a psychedelic trip both heady and timeless.
