Australian trio The Goon Sax have made a video for “Temples,” one of the highlights of their third album, “Mirror II”. “‘Temples’ is an offering in song that I wanted to be overwhelmingly pretty and a bit nostalgic,” says the band’s James Harrison. “It sort of reminds me of an epic biopic or a scripted love letter. When writing the lyrics, I was trying to surmise a romance in its entirety rather than as a self-contained moment. That’s why I think the romanticism is a bit unbelievable. And why I felt like I was in a dream state when I wrote it.”

The new video for my song “Temples” from “Mirror II” is up now on our YouTube. It’s an offering in song that I wanted to be overwhelmingly pretty and a bit nostalgic. It sort of reminds me of an epic biopic or a scripted love letter.

As for the video, James says, “The lyrics are referential to The Wind and The Willows as well as Tim Buckley. The video takes inspiration from Joanna Newsom’s clip for ‘Divers’ as well as a scene from the 2000’s Kanye West clip “’ll Falls Down.’ Director James Caswell and band mates Louis and Riley helped me bring this song and video to life.”

From the album ‘Mirror II,’ out on Matador Records (world ex Aus/NZ) and Chapter Music (Aus/NZ).
