Temples - Hot Motion [Limited Green/Tan with Red/Yellow Splatter Color Vinyl]
With their third brilliantly crafted and ingeniously intricate album, Hot Motion, beloved British band Temples have found new ground and a deeper, darker creative well. A glorious technicolor infuses much of the record but there is a David Lynch-ian undertone that adds a gravity to Hot Motion's soaring moments. "It felt like there was a darker edge to what we were coming up with and we wanted to make sure that carried through the whole record," said bassist Thomas Walmsley. "It's not a ten track, relentless rock record from start to finish, it's got a lot of light and shade and more tender moments, but that heavier, darker sound is something we wanted to explore further." 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.
