Music Video: Nice hair! Stylish new video from psychedelic band Temples

Posted by Liv Siddall,

You can imagine what goes through a director’s head when they hear the trippy, distant melody of a psychedelic band like Temples: “Okay, we’re gonna need some dry ice, glitzy clothing, an afro comb and a shitload of mirrors.” And that’s exactly what seems to have happened here in the case of director Abbie Stephens’ in her stupendous video for the band’s latest single Keep on The Dark. Abbie’s previously worked with other bands such as Primal Scream, Haim and Public Enemy and has a real knack for getting the band’s message across in simple, effective imagery. I love the way that the spotlight shines through the band members’ curly locks in a nod to the footage of bands in the 1960s and 1970s. Mmmm.
