Here Is Your Temple – Once rich (from the So high EP, Bolero Recordings)

Pop music is simple enough when you know how to put it all together.

Here Is Your Temple are a Swedish group with an English singer. The song opens with a soft, insistent bass drum and a circling guitar pattern. Then, a synth masquerading as an air raid siren signals the first uplift.

The first of many, as a chorus appears that just keeps on giving. Like a Fleetwood Mac Rumours chorus, pitter patter bass and epic, stadium synth melodies. You’ll be out of breath by the end and putting the thing on repeat.

Perfect, perfect pop music.
