10th Anniversary of Temples top 10 record Sun Structures. A brand new double-vinyl edition (X2 LP coloured vinyl edition with mirr-board sleeve) of Temples top 10, critically acclaimed debut album Sun Structures is being released for Record Store Day, 2024.

Sun Structures was originally released in the spring of 2013, and features the singles 'Shelter Song', 'Colours To Life', 'Keep In The Dark' and 'Mesmerise'. The RSD edition includes a download of the album and 'Sun Restructured' - Beyond The Wizard Sleeves (Erol Alkan and Richard Norris) re-imagination of this classic debut. "Doing something different with a pop song, breaking the convention of verses and choruses– it's something we always keep in mind when we're recording,” said bassist Tom Warmsley, who founded Temples with singer/guitarist James Bagshaw in the summer of 2012.

Looking like a West Coast psych band, Temples arrived with all the hallmarks of cosmic travellers. There's the band name, for starters, there are track titles that sound like JG Ballard novels (Prisms, The Golden Throne, Sun Structures) and there's the fact that they take incense sticks on the road with them. But if all of the above suggests Temples are backwards-lookin, think again. The Kettering four-piece's debut is a mix of scuzzy glam stomp, dreamy, 12-string-drenched folk-rock, droning psych and more – all given a 2013 spin.

It's a record that set out the band's stall as Britain's premier retro-futurists, with influences ranging from '60s psychedelia to Motown, glam, Krautrock and baggy, all viewed through a very modern kaleidoscope – and always keeping the song at the heart of it all.
