Listen to “You’re Either On Something” HERE
Temples have today shared “You’re Either On Something,” the latest track from their forthcoming third album, Hot Motion – to be released worldwide on ATO Records on Friday, September 27 2019. The band will begin their North American tour on October 11, starting with Desert Daze Festival.
“I’m excited for people to experience these songs for the first time,” declares singer and guitarist James Bagshaw. “They are constructed in such a way that the album should feel relatively instantaneous, but we did not water down our creative ideas. Getting that balance can be hard, perhaps on the last record on some songs we used too many layers to create depth, but making this album we discovered that depth doesn’t simply come by layering things, it can come from the intensity of an idea.”
Talking about the track, singer James Bagshaw says:
“I’m really proud of “You’re Either On Something” lyrically because I feel deeply connected with the words – they’re so truthful. On that track, I can hear influences of stuff that I listened to when I was growing up. There’s almost a nostalgia to that track, even though it’s very forward-looking.”
Hot Motion, which follows their acclaimed albums Sun Structures (2014) & Volcano (2017), is Temples’ debut release for renowned label ATO Records and the band recently unveiled the title track from the record. Listen to “Hot Motion” here.
With their third, brilliantly crafted and ingeniously intricate, album Temples have found new ground and a deeper, darker creative well. A glorious technicolour infuses much of the album but there is a David Lynch-ian undertone that adds a gravity to Hot Motion’s soaring moments.
Fizzing with ideas, bursting with kinetic energy and balancing an immediate impact with an enduring, timeless intensity, Hot Motion is a cohesive album in a time of stand alone singles. Temples have created an aural tapestry for dark days; an inviting and warm sanctuary away from the daily churn of information overload. It’s an album of complexity, crafted for repeat listening.
Renowned for their mesmerizing live performances a Temples have also announced a U.K. and European headline tour in the early winter, a number of festival shows over the summer and an extensive U.S. tour in the autumn.
TEMPLES are: James Bagshaw (lead vocals / guitar), Thomas Walmsley (bass, vocals) & Adam Smith (keyboards, guitar, vocals)
