Temples have today shared the stunning video for You’re Either On Something, taken from their forthcoming third album, Hot Motion – to be released worldwide this week on ATO Records on Friday 27th September 2019.
Talking about the video, James Bagshaw of the band said:
The video for ‘You’re Either On Something’ is semi-surreal depiction of a night out. Where an irrational fear replaces fun and joviality, and the familiar becomes unfamiliar. But then, the feeling of fear dissipates and seems like a distant memory and the familiar feels comfortable again. Before you know it a guitar solo ensues…
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.
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 mesmerising live performances and having played a stunning set at this year’s All Points East Festival, 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.
