Last month, Temples released their debut album called Sun Structures on Heavenly Records. The up-and-coming British rock band took part in Austin's SXSW Festival and performed "Mesmerise" at the Public Radio Rocks showcase. WFUV has captured the performance with some excellent pro-shot video you can watch above, via YouTube.
Fronted by James Bagshaw, the band is part modern indie rock and part throwback '60s psychedelia. Bagshaw wears glittery makeup, although it's a little hard to see through his enormous hair. His guitar playing is really fantastic, with precision and an interesting variety of sounds through the 5 minute performance of the song. Toward the end of the song, the band switches into a trancey ambient groove built around a guitar loop and steady drumming. In all, it's an ambitious and well executed piece of music.
