Track Of The Day: Mellow Gang – ‘Temps’

Following last year’s impressive debut EP Play, psych-pop four piece Mellow Gang have since received praise from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Clash and London In Stereo, and are now back to bewitch listeners with a brand new single.

Flowing with a sweeping ethereal haze and raw emotion, ‘Temps’ will have you hooked on first listen. Oozing a twinkling, psychedelic soundscape alongside the spellbinding power of Harriet Joseph’s rich, brooding vocals, it’s a truly captivating, and totally dreamy, wall of sound.

Of the track, the band explain:

” (it) centres on an emotional alternation between realising some relationships, being friends or romantic, were only supposed to be temporary, and the helpless limbo that comes with all of the inconsistency of trying to salvage anything out of desperation. Reflectively, yes it’s sad, as you become dependent, but also hopeful. There’s always aggression towards the end, but in calling it a day, it’s deciding whether to be kind, or just let that hot and cold frustration turn into a front you later regret.”
