Temples of Youth are an indie dream pop duo from Winchester. Their music consists of powerful female vocals, against a soundscape of ambient synth and shimmering guitar. Dig a little deeper and you will find some big themes explored in their work which has often been compared to artists such as Daughter, Beach House and London Grammar. Paul Gumma and Jo Carson began working on their live set in December 2015, with the desire to bring their music to the stage with a limited number of hands; Jo on percussion and Paul on guitar, utilising samplers and effects to recreate their sound.
Their ever growing emotive body of work has attracted the attention of BBC Introducing, and the pair were invited in for live sessions for BBC Introducing South and BBC Introducing Solent. Their first track Enso, was selected by Steve Lamacq for airplay on his BBC6 Radio Show and their third track, Dunes, was played by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1.
