With their frizzy mullets and dislocated stares, it's instantly obvious that Temples aren't just another workaday Britrock crew. From Kettering, a small town in the English midlands, their music is an appropriately bucolic blend of full pedal psychedelia and vintage glam. Started as a loose alliance between guitarist James Edward Bagshaw and bassist Thomas Warmsley, their career has pursued an unlikely route: the pair were required to put a band together on the fly after some early YouTube demos saw half-a-dozen record labels vying for their signature. Single 'Shelter Song' has enjoyed heavy UK airplay and they've received resounding endorsements from Johnny Marr and Noel Gallagher – with characteristic understatement, the former Oasis man proclaimed them the "best new band in Britain". It's harder to disagree than you might imagine.
