Temples where nowhere to be found after the release of their third studio record, Hot Motion in September, 2019. Today they return with a Sean Ono Lennon featured track titled ‘Paraphernalia’.
“I’d always been a fan of the band,” Lennon reveals. “Had seen them play some pretty great shows over the years. When I first heard the demo for Paraphernalia I knew they had a great tune.”
How the track came about goes back to September, 2019 when the group were touring in support of Hot Motion, made a serendipitous connection at the Desert Daze festival in Lake Perris, California. Following their own performance, Temples caught their ATO labelmates’ The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s set and afterwards found themselves talking about music with the band’s frontman Sean Ono Lennon.
“Paraphernalia is on your mind / And paranoia turns you blind / Paraphernalia is everywhere / Can we escape from the dеlirium?.” The group sings on the chorus of the song.
