Temples are back with a new song, London show

Check out 'Certainty' now.
Temples have returned with not only a new song, but a new London show too.

The band today share their track ‘Certainty’, the first to be taken from their next album, due out early 2017 via Heavenly Recordings.

“When writing the melody for ‘Certainty’, I wanted to create something with almost an eerie, early Disney vibe, something playful and harmonious, but with a dark twist,” says frontman James Bagshaw.

“Producing the song was as much about layering as it was about sparseness — the verses needed to reveal the thumping motion of the bass and the reflective lyrics, and the melody had to be paired with the right ambience.

“The chorus was approached in an opposite way, layer after layer, thickening the sound. There’s a blend between moog bass, and actual bass, and the song switches between synthetic and analogue sounds throughout. The guitar mirrors the synth, and visa versa.”

The show meanwhile will take place at Oslo on 6th October.

Temples’ debut album ‘Sun Structures’ was released in 2014.
