Temples On World Cafe

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

The English band Temples hails from the small town of Kettering, where its psychedelic music came together in the home studio of singer-guitarist James Edward Bagshaw in 2012. In that small space, the group made the big-sounding Shelter Song, which got the young band noticed; a recording contract soon followed. The album Sun Structures was recorded in much the same fashion.

There are elements from the past, for sure, but this is a fresh-sounding band. Bagshaw and bassist Thomas Wormsly, along with drummer Sam Toms and keyboardist-guitarist Adam Smith, play live in this installment of World Cafe.
