London’s neo-psych band Temples have released the video for their latest single “Slow Days“.
Exotico marks the band’s most far-reaching collection thus far, a 16-track panoramic musical travelogue set beyond the horizon on an impossibly utopic island where every song serves as a different stop along the atoll, from beaches with azure blue waters to forest canopies enveloped in rare birdsong. With its resplendent collage of psychedelia and krautrock and time-bending dream-pop, Exotico brings that world to life in crystalline detail, all while exploring an entire spectrum of existential themes: impermanence, mortality, our connection with nature and the wild immensity of the mind.
The video was filmed & edited by Sheva Kafai in Los Angeles, London & Paris, 2023, with additional forest footage by Temples.
