Following the release of their ‘Mirror II’ album in July, The Goon Sax are sharing the video for album cut ‘Temples’.

“Temples is an offering in song that I wanted to be overwhelmingly pretty and a bit nostalgic,” James Harrison explains. “It sort of reminds me of an epic biopic or a scripted love letter.When writing the lyrics, I was trying to surmise a romance in its entirety rather than as a self-contained moment. That’s why I think the romanticism is a bit unbelievable. And why I felt like I was in a dream state when I wrote it.

“The lyrics are referential to The Wind and The Willows as well as Tim Buckley. The video takes inspiration from Joanna Newsom’s clip for ‘Divers’ as well as a scene from the 2000’s Kanye West clip ‘All Falls Down’. Director James Caswell and band mates Louis and Riley helped me bring this song and video to life.”
