TEMPLE OF ONE - The Cards (Single)
Take one groove-ridden funky bass player and add a generous dose of crunchy, snarling riffs. Put them in a blender and what do you get? You get ‘The Cards’ by TEMPLE OF ONE, the new band featuring ex-Inglorious members Colin Parkinson (vocals/bass) and Drew Lowe (guitars).
The duo have joined forces with drummer ‘Greenie’ to channel their collective energies into a muscular, guitar-driven, grunge sound with masses of dirty, sweaty, nimble riffs that meld into the low lines that pulse away under the lead.
‘Greenie’ holds it all together nicely with some tight rhythm to his drumming that propels ‘The Cards’ forward and the repeated chorus winds its way into your head courtesy of Parkinson who takes on the vocal duties.
There are hooks aplenty, and pleasing melody lines that will have fans singing the lyrics back to the band live, I’m sure.
Already receiving airplay, the trio has certainly not wasted any time in getting their music out for us to hear and it is a solid debut single from TEMPLE OF ONE, giving us a taste of what to expect from their debut album, due later this year.
TEMPLE OF ONE play The Borderline in London on May 18th alongside DAXX & ROXANE and COLLATERAL and they’ve recently been announced to play the New Rock Stage at Planet Rockstock on Sunday December 8th.
