The Temper Trap @ Camden Crawl 2009

The Temper Trap are from Melbourne but now live in my backyard, Hackney. Not literally my backyard as I don’t have a garden so that would be weird. If you haven’t heard me ranting about them already then they are my favourite new band for a long time. If you have heard me ranting then I apologise but hopefully you’ll still enjoy this latest offering ‘Resurrection’ from their forthcoming album ‘Conditions’. Continue reading

The Temper Trap @ Camden Crawl 2009 by musicmule.co.uk

What? The Temper Trap

The Temper Trap were the best band of the festival for me. This happened at SXSW a few weeks ago and now again. How can this be? Because they are amazing. I kid you not. Front man Dougy’s voice is a force to be reckoned with, climbing to hit the highest of notes and you can tell he’s feeling every word, eyes closed, hands and head shaking, you can’t help but join in. The rest of the band are no slouches either, moving with ease from power ballads like anthem in the making ‘Sweet Disposition’ to the polyrhythmic art-rockout that is current single ‘Science Of Fear’. The band have just relocated from Melbourne to London, so hopefully that’ll mean a lot more shows for us. Welcome guys!

For Fans Of: TV On The Radio, Radiohead, Muse.

Live: The Fly, Central London. April 30th

mp3: The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition

So I went to see Melbourne’s finest The Temper Trap again to make sure I wasn’t wrong about how good they were the night before. Turns out I wasn’t. These guys are the real deal. Front man Dougy has a great range to his vocals and the wall of sound music is fantastic. Go see them the first chance you have which at the moment for you UK folk is The Great Escape.

For Fans Of: TV On The Radio, The Rapture, good U2.
