Songfacts®:

  • Temples was initially formed in mid 2012 as a home studio project by vocalist James Bagshaw and bassist Tom Warmsley, who had previously worked together in The Moons. Following the excited online response to their first-ever recording, 2012's "Shelter Song," the duo recruited drummer Sam Toms and keyboardist Adam Smith to form a full-fledged band so that they might take up the many gig requests they were receiving throughout the UK. By July 2013, they were opening for the Rolling Stones at Hyde Park.
  • This is the title track of their debut album, which is filled with the kind of cosmic lyric writing that compares to such psychedelic 1970s acts as Hawkwind and George Clinton. "There's a lot of references to spirituality and mythology," Warmsley told NME, "but it's more about the general atmosphere and the feelings evoked in the music – that's the most important thing. We just wanted to be bold and venture into all the areas we want to venture into."
