Temples are back as a trio and with a new album on September 27th, and they’ve now released another track from Hot Motion.
“Context was originally written as an observation of words being taken out of context, and how that changes the sentiment and meaning of words,” says frontman James Bagshaw.
“This thought process crossed over into the musicality of the song. I wanted to reinvigorate the idea of the guitar solo, and also re-contextualise influences from my favorite musical pioneers.”
“There is a nod to Les Paul and Mary Ford, and the guitar solo pays homage to a recording technique made famous on the piano sound on In My Life by The Beatles! We recorded the guitar solo at half speed, and then sped it up afterwards!”
