The Temper Trap

The Temper Trap is a rock band from Melbourne, Australia. They are most noted for their atmospheric sound, featuring grand guitars set to pulsating rhythms. They’re main influences for their album Conditions included Radiohead, Prince, Massive Attack and U2. I first heard the group in (500) Days of Summer and after finding their album it has been on my playlist all month. It’s fun upbeat poppy rock. However, it’s the lead singer’s voice that’s really going to sell the album. He does that high pitched aching vocal amazingly well. I think the group has been compared to Coldplay quite a bit, so if you like Coldplay or Kings of Leon, you will probably like this.
