I love when an LP doesn’t do justice to a live show. Going in to covering Temples at Star Theater on Thursday I was nervous that the sounds I heard on their new LP, Sun Structures, weren’t going to translate to a great show, but I was wrong.
Blitzing guitar riffs, dramatic lighting and a crowd that was so very much in to what they were hearing brings the album alive. It’s always fun to watch a crowd gather as the minutes tick down to show time. You go in to secure a spot and find yourself fighting to inch closer to the stage. That’s when the excitement builds.
Temples could not look more the part of a psychedelic rock band from the UK. They fell right out of a time machine after opening for the Beatles in Hyde Park with the tunes to match.
