Song of the Week

Temples – The Golden Throne

(from Sun Structures)


Here in the UK, Summer feels like it has officially arrived. Dappled sunlight paints the pavements and blue skies stretch as far as the eye can see. My sunglasses and sandals are venturing out for the first time in many months, and so are my favourite summer tunes. Temples are the perfect band to accompany a tall glass of Pimms or lemonade in the garden, with the sun setting behind the trees. Their jangly guitar sounds and slurred vocals are almost reminiscent of the Beatles and early Brit-pop, which is high praise indeed. The whole atmosphere of this song, and the others on the album, simply scream summer. Although I have only chosen one song, it would be wrong to say that it was my all time favourite. In fact, I love the whole album, and I’m sad that Temples are such a recent discovery. I wished I’d heard of them for summers past.
