We’re excited to share two new Temples remixes with you of their current single ‘Certainty.’
“Pushing the Temples’ boundaries a bit further, fellow British rockers Franz Ferdinand flipped the group’s newest single ‘Certainty.’
Bathed in mesmerizing synths, Franz Ferdinand alienates the original’s wooziness and laces dark loops and a sweeping underlying bassline behind the arrangement. The fuzzy frequency stimulates the expansive track transforming the Temples’ nostalgic cut into an infectious five-minute escape.
“When someone is remixing a song you have a certain idea of how you think it will sound, Franz Ferdinand have really turned the track on its head, arrangement and even genre,” Temples frontman James Bagshaw said in a statement. “I don’t think any of us expected such an electronic reimagined version of the song! It’s wonderful.”
Here’s what Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos said about the remix, “There were so many dimensions to this song when we first heard it. We chose one and explored it until it took us out into a completely different one.”
Temples release their new album ‘Volcano’ on March 3rd, 2017. We have limited copies available on yellow vinyl in our emporium which you can purchase here.
Next year Temples play a special intimate show at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge on Sunday January 22nd with support from Amber Arcades. This show is part of a four day Heavenly event at the venue running from Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd January.
