Follow Temples of Youth

We're Jo and Paul - an indie/dream pop duo called Temples of Youth from Winchester. We met online, decided to meet and hope neither of us were catfish-ed, and have been working together since. That was about 2 years ago. We take influence from singer songwriters like Florence Welch and Patti Smith to dream pop bands like Beach House and the Cocteau Twins. People like to compare us to Daughter and London Grammar. We write and record in Paul's little home studio with never ending cups of tea - we're easily pleased.

Our releases so far have been supported by BBC Introducing, Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Clash and Wonderland amongst others. We've been lucky enough to play some amazing shows, and have played alongside Sundara Karma, Declan Mckenna, Inheaven, Pale Waves and Weaves. We made this year's Glastonbury Emerging Longlist (we were kindly selected by The Quietus' Rory Gibb) and played sets at The Great Escape, Are You Listening and Southsea Festival.

We'll be releasing our debut EP on the 17th of November. The EP is a summary of our work over the last two years and has some brand new tracks as well as some re-worked previous releases. We'll be doing an instore show at our local independent record store 'Elephant Records' to celebrate, and we've got a few cool shows coming up before the year is out.

Next year is going to be very much about writing new material, and we're really excited to get working on the ideas we have.

We are inspired by what's going on in the world around us as well as our own personal experiences. We write together, sharing thoughts over whatsapp amid a sea of animal memes when really we should be focussing on our 9-5s. We never stop thinking of new ideas and ways we can improve our set up. We want to record an album, who doesn't? But we're waiting patiently in the wings until the time is right, and working away on our tracks.
