The summer of love is over but nobody told Temples. This English quartet recalls the swirling psychedelia of Swinging London, even if paisley and silk have become passé in the 21st century.

Their trip through the doors of perception recalls the sounds and pop hooks of Pink Floyd, as led by Syd Barrett, Donovan and the Yardbirds. Vocalist/guitarist James Bagshaw and bassist Thomas Warmsley started Temples as a home studio project in 2012, and a series of YouTube videos helped find them a record deal.

The band embraces the genre of psychedelic rock and, unlike many other bands flying that flag, they are able to make their time capsule of sound relevant. It is an arduous task to take on a style without being derivative but that makes Temple unique. Their homage to late sixties British rockers with a decidedly modern twist has been earning them acclaim from the likes of Johnny Marr and Noel Gallagher.

With the addition of Adam Smith and Samuel Toms, the band's harmonies, sparkling guitars and deep grooves make “Shelter Song” and “Colour in Life” perfect for the sunny landscape of summer. Temples may recall the Swinging London summer of love but with their ability to craft a great modern pop song makes them stand head and shoulders above their contemporaries.
