Temples Announce Debut Album “Sun Structures”

Temples Announce Debut Album, Sun Structures, Out 2/11 On Fat Possum; Share "Mesmerize"

Kettering, England’s favorite psychedelic sons Temples are announcing their debut full-length, Sun Structures, out February 11th on Fat Possum. It’s a record that’s destined to set out the band’s stall as Britain’s premier retro-futurists, with influences ranging from ’60s psychedelia to Motown, glam, and Krautrock, all viewed through a very modern kaleidoscope – and always keeping the song at the heart of it all. Recorded in the box-room of guitarist/vocalist James Bagshaw‘s home, the aim was “Jack Nitzsche on a DIY budget,” and with one listen to first single off the record, “Mesmerise,” it’s pretty clear that they’ve succeeded.

Temples begin their North American tour today. Temples are: James Bagshaw (vocals & guitar), Tom Warmsley (bass & backing vocals), Sam Toms (drums) & Adam Smith (keys).
