Adam Smith plays keyboard and guitar in Temples, the incredible psychedelic rock band from England. It looks like about a year ago he released a bunch of great songs on his Soundcloud page. ‘A Loon’s Cry’ initially caught my attention because I thought it resembled some of Ty Segall’s work, but after listening to more of his material it became clear that I was really hearing elements of Syd Barrett and Marc Bolan. Especially after reading the opening verse of ‘A Loon’s Cry’, which I find extremely provocative.
Opening Verse of ‘A Loon’s Cry’…
‘Nobody asked me about placing me on earth
They wouldn’t talk to me
Nobody questioned you concerning your own birth
Now that’s just the way things be
Oh deary me’
