Temples Debut Lp Remixed By Beyond The Wizards Sleeve


Temples lauded pop psyche debut album 'Sun Structures' has been completely remade by Beyond the Wizards Sleeve duo Erol Alkan and Richard Norris. Titled 'Sun Restructured', the new version of the album takes 5 tracks as a starting point (Sand Dance, Shelter Song, A Question Isn’t Answered, Golden Throne & Move With The Season) and weaves a 42 minute head trip aorund them.

“Being asked to re-animate a whole album’s worth of material is an honour." writes Alkan. "We (in return) wanted to create something special. A record which could be listened to in one go, from start to finish, a listening experience that is becoming increasingly rare. So as well as a host of full Beyond The Wizards Sleeve re-animations here, there are interludes, ambiance, ebb and flow…each section flowing int a bigger piece. We tried many things along the way: spoken word sections, days out collecting field recordings, yet ended up letting the original songs and their beautiful arrangements and melodies guide us. There is so much happening under the surface of Sun Structures, and deep within each track, it was a pleasure to dive in and see what we could find. it inspired us to pick up our guitars, plug in our synthesisers and add some wizardry on top. Enjoy this trip. And it is a trip."

The remixed album will be released as part of a 'Sun Structures' deluxe edition coming out through Heavenly on Monday November 10th. More details over on the Heavenly website. In the meantime, there's plenty of chances to watch Temples live – catch them at the following dates
