Temples have a wild night out in new ‘You’re Either On Something’ video

The new visuals come before the release of third album ‘Hot Motion’ on 27th September.

With their third record ‘Hot Motion’ - the follow-up to their 2017 LP ‘Volcano’ - set for release at the end of the week (27th September), Temples have shared the video for shimmering cut ‘You’re Either On Something’.

Speaking on the track, frontman James Bagshaw says: “I’m really proud of ‘You’re Either On Something’ lyrically because I feel deeply connected with the words – they’re so truthful. On that track, I can hear influences of stuff that I listened to when I was growing up. There’s almost a nostalgia to that track, even though it’s very forward-looking.”

Now releasing the accompanying visuals, they depict the group on a particularly wild night out. “The video for ‘You’re Either On Something’ is semi-surreal depiction of a night out. Where an irrational fear replaces the fun and joviality, and the familiar becomes unfamiliar,” James explains. “But then, the feeling a fear dissipates and seems like a distant memory and the familiar feels comfortable again. Before you know it a guitar solo ensues…”
