British psychedelic pop trio Temples are releasing a new album, Hot Motion, this Friday via ATO (their first for the label). Now they have shared a video for the album’s previously shared single “You’re Either On Something.” Sam Kinsella directed the suitably trippy clip, which features the band in a bar where reality warps just a little bit. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Temples’ frontman James Bagshaw had this to say about the video in a press release: “The video for ‘You’re Either On Something’ is semi-surreal depiction of a night out. Where an irrational fear replaces the fun and joviality, and the familiar becomes unfamiliar. But then, the feeling a fear dissipates and seems like a distant memory and the familiar feels comfortable again. Before you know it a guitar solo ensues…”

Previously Temples shared a video for the album’s title track (also its opening track), “Hot Motion” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared its second single “You’re Either On Something,” which was #1 on our Songs of the Week list. Then they shared another song from the album, “Context,” which was also one of our Songs of the Week.

Hot Motion is the band’s third album follows 2014’s debut album, Sun Structures, and 2017’s sophomore album, Volcano. The band now consists of James Bagshaw (lead vocals/guitar), Thomas Walmsley (bass/vocals), and Adam Smith (keyboards/guitar/vocals). The album was recorded in a studio set up in an outbuilding of Bagshaw’s house in the midlands of England.

“We’ve gone from bedroom to living room to a dedicated space. We could all set up in the same room and allow things to play out a lot more like a band. That played a huge part in the sound of the record,” said Walmsley in a press release.

In terms of Hot Motion‘s sound, Walmsley had this to say: “It felt like there was a darker edge to what we were coming up with and we wanted to make sure that carried through the whole record. It’s not a 10 track, relentless rock record from start to finish, it’s got a lot of light and shade and more tender moments, but that heavier, darker sound is something we wanted to explore further.”
