What? The Temper Trap + It Hugs Back + Threatmantics

The Temper Trap along and fellow Ozzies Empire Of The Sun mean that Downunder has an unusually big claim to some of the most exciting bands around this year. Not as dancey or seemingly eccentric as Empire of the Sun but their rock music sounds like it could be just as epic in its proportions. Big guitar hooks, big vocals. A great opportunity to catch this band before anyone else does. If you haven’t heard the previous On Repeat track ‘Sweet Disposition’ then why not?! It’s below again just in case you missed it.
For Fans of: TV On The Radio, (early) U2, Radiohead.

First support comes from It Hugs Back who play ‘swooning dream-pop full of joyous indie-rock delight and delicate shoegazing melancholia’. I’ve seen them live and that’s not far off. Melodic head nodding delight with laid back vocals.
For Fans of: Sonic Youth.

Second support comes from favourites of Huw Stephens and fellow Welshies, the freak folk rock band, Threatmantics.
For fans of: Super Furry Animals, The Coral, Crack.
