WFUV at SXSW 2014: Temples


Temples has generated a whole lotta adulation in a short time. Formed in Northamptonshire, England in 2012 by singer-guitarist James Edward Bagshaw and bassist Thomas Edison Warmsley, they've mesmerized the press and some heavy-hitting rock god fans as well.

Plus they look fabulous. It's like Marc Bolan has somehow been reincarnated with his guitar collection intact.

Temples' self-produced debut album, Sun Structures, just came out in February, and if you've heard it you'll recognize much of this glam-meriffic live set from the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage showcase at SXSW 2014. More at
