It's got "an eerie, early Disney vibe..."

Temples have broken cover, with new song 'Certainty' streaming online now.

The psych-pop outfit enjoyed huge success with their Heavenly backed debut album, and went back into the studio earlier this year.

Frontman James Bagshaw oversaw sessions, with Temples set to release their second album through Heavenly early next year.

New cut 'Certainty' is online now, and it's a bewitching, colour-soaked, synth-enhanced return. James explains:

"When writing the melody for 'Certainty', I wanted to create something with almost an eerie, early Disney vibe, something playful and harmonious, but with a dark twist. Producing the song was as much about layering as it was about sparseness -- the verses needed to reveal the thumping motion of the bass and the reflective lyrics, and the melody had to be paired with the right ambience. The chorus was approached in an opposite way, layer after layer, thickening the sound. There’s a blend between moog bass, and actual bass, and the song switches between synthetic and analogue sounds throughout. The guitar mirrors the synth, and visa versa."

Check it out now.

Temples are set to play London's Oslo venue on October 6th.
