Temples — James Bagshaw (vocals, guitar), Tom Warmsley (bass, backing vocals), Sam Toms(drums) and Adam Smith (keys) — are set to release their new album, Volcano, on March 3rd via Fat Possum. The band’s announcement comes on the heels of a sold-out North American tour and a recent performance on Last Call with Carson Daly, where the English four-piece presented debut single, “Certainty,” to viewers across the nation. Shortly thereafter, Temples shared the video for the single, which you can watch above, directed by Alden Volney. He describes it below.
"This is based on a recurring dream I have been having since childhood about getting into a sea of plastic. So when the band approached me about doing something inspired by those JPOP videos that ooze quirkiness and eccentricity, I thought injecting the color palettes and aesthetics of Japan into this idea could be a good fit. It's designed to feel like a fever dream you'd have after spending too much time in a Japanese dollar store.”
