Volcano by Temples

Temples are a band similar to Tame Impala. They make psych-rock music, that fits any mood. Volcano is an incredible record, and it feels like the beginning of something big for Temples.

Volcano is Temples’ second studio album, and it definitely trumps the already huge success of their debut album, Sun Structures.

Volcano opens with the hit “Certainty”. This song reminds me a lot of Tame Impala because of the layers synths and loneliness that comes from the lyrics of “Certainty”.

I want to know that certainty’s in my life
Isn’t lonely and more defined
“Certainty” is such a well done track, and it is the biggest hit for Temples, but it deserves to be as big as the likes of Tame Impala. Instead of 2.5 million Spotify hits, it should have 60.8 million hits like Tame Impala’s “Let It Happen”.

“I Wanna Be Your Mirror” is also an excellent track from this album. This track’s sounds are eerie and psychedelic.

Volcano closes with “Strange or Be Forgotten”. This track is the perfect closing song for this album because it sums up the band’s persona. Their music is strange and alluring– definitely hard to forget about.
