008: sounds like bond?

The classic Bond themes have a distinctive bombast - minor key ballads that crank up to huge, hauntingly dramatic moments. Here are its siblings with their big Barry-esque orchestrations and (one hopes) Bassey-like belting.

The Golden Throne

From my favourite new BritPsyche band Temples (first posted last fall) Bond credentials: Subdued intro, then big guitar riff and driving percussion, the chromatically unconventional sense of melody, the feeling of mystery by dipping into minor scales, whining surf guitar , violins, even the odd organ at the end (instead of trumpets?) adds to the very Barryness, along with the inscrutable lyrics:

Clashed hands shaking in the closet
Hands down, you will have to see
Past plans verbatim and forgotten
Act now

Too bad there's no video, but use your imagination.
