Just like the retro-rock vibe of Foxygen‘s first official full-length, promising Brightonians Temple Gardens are reimagining little pockets of rock and psych history with their early offerings. Most recent cut ‘Darker Shade Of Blue’ harks back to the late 60s with a knowing wink, sounding like a combination of Procol Harum‘s earthy blues and noughties revivalists Golden Silvers at their most downtempo.

Alongside the rock ‘n’ roll shuffle and parping trumpet is Harry Mitchell’s curious lyrics and gravelly baccy-glazed croak, soulfully straddling that of King Krule and former Wu Lyf man Ellery Roberts. It makes for an evocative listen, one that could have seeped out of the jukey amid the fug of a working men’s club circa ’71.
