Temple of Angels Joins RFC, Debut Album "Endless Pursuit" out 7/14
Temple of Angels have joined the RFC roster, and announced the first release of the new team-up: their debut album, Endless Pursuit, due out July 14th. Across eleven stunning songs the Austin, TX-based four-piece have captured all of the most dazzling and entrancing elements of dream pop while still highlighting the hefty dose of hook-filled songwriting at its core.
To celebrate the announcement Temple of Angels have shared the lead single from Endless Pursuit Tangled In Joy." With chiming guitars and atmosphere to spare, the track engulfs you in melody and mood, and of course, the soaring voice of singer, Bre Morell.
Temple of Angels formed in 2017, emerging from the Texas punk and hardcore scene with a widescreen sound recalling the likes of Cocteau Twins, The Cure, or The Sundays. After releasing a series of EPs and singles, the band have made good on the promise of their early work with Endless Pursuit. The album was recorded with Colin Knight (Death Bells, Fury, Leisure World) and Phillip Odom (Ceremony, Militarie Gun, Portrayal of Guilt), and then mastered by Will Yip (Turnover, Citizen, Title Fight), and sounds so fully formed and assured that it belies the difficult circumstances that inspired it. Throughout the record, Morell reckons with the loss of a parent and its deeply unmooring impact on her life. “I started having extremely vivid nightmares reliving certain experiences with my mom that started to take over my life, trapping me in that trauma,” Morell explains. These dreams, filled with “the constant feeling that something or someone so essential to you is missing, home doesn't feel like home anymore, and something about this world just feels off now” would form the central core of Endless Pursuit.
