You know when a song starts and just those first few notes send eargasmic shockwaves down your neck and spine? That’s what happened to me as soon as I hit play on Temple of Angels’ new record, Endless Pursuit. I already talked about how healing from grief is an endless pursuit in the last feature I wrote about this band, but that was just based on their single. Now I’ve been through the whole journey with them, start to finish, and it’s one that I’m going to return to over and over again (because the vinyl is heading my way soon).
Listening to Endless Pursuit is like strapping into a sonic rollercoaster in the clouds, rolling and floating above everyone else on Earth, diving into despair and then shooting back up into bliss. It’s the kind of record I can listen to when I need to articulate my emotions with just feeling and no words because my old programming won’t let me speak them. There’s something nostalgic about Temple of Angels’ sound on this record, but at the same time it’s unlike anything I’ve heard. Endless Pursuit is out July 14th via Run For Cover Records — pre-order it here. Check out some of the singles they’ve released below and make sure you pick this record up because it’s a classic that will get you through whatever you need it to.
