We’re glad to have TEMPLES back. Do let us know what you think
Temples have announced details of ‘Certainty’, the first track to be taken from their forthcoming album, due out early 2017 on Heavenly Recordings.
Talking about the track, front man James Bagshaw, who produced the single, said: “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. 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.”
Additionally, the band have announced details of a very special show at Oslo, in Hackney, London on Thursday 6th October 2016.
Tickets for the show go on pre-sale via Dice on Tuesday September 27th via dice.fm/event/temples-6th-oct-oslo-london-tickets and general sale on Wednesday September 28th via http://axs.com/uk/events/325782/temples-tickets?skin=goldenvoiceuk
