First look at video for new single; tour dates below

Temples, one of Heavenly's troupe of excellent psych-exponents, have just released their video to 'Colours To Life', their new single, out on June 24 - have a watch above.

It's another cut of immaculately-crafted pyschedelic pop, building, like last year's 'Shelter Song' on a spindly 12-string riff, but breaking through into something altogether more cosmic for the Mellotron-gilded chorus, as James Bagshaw's vocals pace, almost out of earshot, through "space" and "spectrums" (ably abetted by the spinning of a giant kaleidoscope in the background).
