Band of the Day: The Temper Trap

NAME: The Temper Trap
HOMETOWN: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

HOW I HEARD ABOUT THEM: A link to North Cote Social Club from a gig review on The Age lead me to searching for The Temper Trap–who were opening for a band called “Snowman”. They were described as “closing 2006 with a bang and launching themselves into a similarly fast-paced 2007. Their tour with Snowman precedes performances up and down the east coast as part of the Laneway, Great Escape and V festivals, plus their hugely exciting support slot for US heroes Modest Mouse
LATEST RELEASE: The Temper Trap [EP]
WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE: Piercing vocals, lots of energetic guitar strumming, large stadium-ready sound. Can totally see why they toured with Modest Mouse.
1 to 5 RATING: 3
OTHER BLOGS THAT HAVE TALKED ABOUT THEM: Obscure Sound, Get Big Little Kid, Off the Record
LISTEN TO MORE: “Sirens” and “Sunday Painter” on the Myspace

  1. You’re on top of things aren’t you. I just got home from seeing these guys play tonight. Was very impressed. I suspect we’ll be hearing plenty more from these guys.

  2. Did you take any photos Dan? I couldn’t make it last night unfortunately, so will have to wait for Laneway to catch them again..
