English four-piece Temples will be back in Minnesota this Friday, October 21st. They are still touring in support of their debut Sun Structures (a Top 10 UK debut named Rough Trade’s “Album of the Year” for 2014), however, expect to hear some preview tracks like ‘Certainty’ from a forthcoming album (set for 2017 on Fat Possum Records).
Frontman James Bagshaw who produced the single, “when writing the melody for ‘Certainty,’ I wanted to create something with almost an eerie, early Disney vibe, something playful and harmonious, but with a dark twist. Producing the song was as much about layering as it was about sparseness -- the verses needed to reveal the thumping motion of the bass and the reflective lyrics, and the melody had to be paired with the right ambience. The chorus was approached in an opposite way, layer after layer, thickening the sound. There’s a blend between moog bass, and actual bass, and the song switches between synthetic and analogue sounds throughout. The guitar mirrors the synth, and visa versa.”
Vinyl Williams to open.
