British trio Temples have announced the details of their third-full length Hot Motion, out via ATO Records on Sept. 27, and shared its first cut and title track.
The band’s follow-up to 2017’s rhapsodic Volcano, Hot Motion finds the band on new ground, and wading into darker, deeper territory in terms of both songwriting and instrumentation.
“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,” bassist Thomas Walmsley said of the album’s character in a statement.
The album’s first single is a bright, brassy return to the band’s distinct psychedelic pomp, but built on a sturdier, stadium-rock backbone. The accompanying video drowns the band in warm hues of orange, red and yellow as they perform the track in a hazy funk.
