‘Mesmerise’ is taken from Temples’ debut ‘Sun Structures’, which was produced by James Bagshaw of the band and recorded at his home in Kettering. It was mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer and entered the Official UK Album Chart at Number Seven yesterday (February 16). Listen to the new remix below. Katy B hit the Number One spot with her new album ‘Little Red’.
Speaking about the record’s DIY element, Bagshaw recently told NME: “It’s similar to Joe Meek – he used to record vocals in his bathroom in his flat on Holloway Road. The way I see it, there aren’t any limitations any more. If you know what you want to achieve, there’s always a way around it.”
Meanwhile, Temples join Fat White Family and Drenge among the acts who will play NME’s showcase at year’s South By Southwest festival.
On March 15, NME and PRS For music will host a night of live performances with Temples, Drenge and Fat White Family all performing live at The British Music Embassy. Also appearing on the bill will be Splashh, San Fermin and Bo Ningen. Further details can be found at the Facebook group for the event. Scroll down for stage times.
