2009 Catch-up – Temper rapture

○○○○●

ANOTHER band touted by myself nearly 12 months ago, alongside acts like Mumford And Sons and Florence And The Machine that came good, was Australian act The Temper Trap.
And with their August release Conditions, they delivered on their promise.
Chock-full of pulsating basslines, jingling guitars and soaring vocals, the debut is as polished and epic as a band can hope for – with some hair-raising moments with the likes of Sweet Disposition and Love Lost.
Perhaps a little variety could be added – but nevertheless like the Coldplays and Kings Of Leons of this world, Temper Trap effortlessly produce the sort of music that stadiums were made for.
U2 take two anyone?
