Ladies and Gentlemen – One of your buzz bands of next year. The Temper Trap are from Melbourne, Australia. They have just recorded their debut album with Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys) so that should give you some indication of where they are heading. If you’ve been paying attention, they were mentioned by Who The Bloody Hell Are They? in the Music Alliance Pact (hereafter known as MAP).
Even better than the original U2-inspired ‘Sweet Disposition’ is the Curtis Vodka 8 minute rework which turns a perfectly good pop song into a perfectly elongated remix. Lovin’ this.
