Having released several solo albums under his own name, Here We Go Magic frontman Luke Temple took on the moniker Art Feynman in 2017, initially as a means of avoiding expectations when it came to the new music he was creating. Previously a purely solo project, for new album ‘Be Good The Crazy Boys’ he worked with a seven piece band, recording songs live in the studio.

“Sonically, I was inspired by records that were recorded at the late Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas”, he explains, “such as Grace Jones’ ‘Private Life’, Lizzy Mercier Descloux’s ‘Mambo Nassau’, and Talking Heads’ ‘Remain In Light’”.

Of new single ‘Desperately Free’, he adds: “I was thinking about the obsession with spiritual growth or with ‘curing’ death and the compensatory consequences that ensue as a result. We can’t cheat nature of which we are one and the same, she’ll find balance eventually”.

‘Be Good The Crazy Boys’ is out on 10 Nov. Listen to ‘Desperately Free’ here:
