The Temper Trap are a band that were formed out of 2005. Working their way out of the Melbourne indie circuit they were discovered and rose to acclaim at the inaugural St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival in March 2006. The Temper Trap released their debut EP that same year, and word of the group’s potential soon spread to other continents. Veteran British producer Jim Abbis (Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Kasabian) saw enough promise in The Temper Trap’s material to fly to Australia, where he gathered the musicians into Melbourne’s SingSing Studio and helped readied their debut album, Conditions for release in 2009.
It’s no coincidence that in 2022 The Temper Trap continues to see success off their back catalog with Sweet Disposition experiencing a viral moment on TikTok racking up over 100 thousand videos and over 200 million views, happily welcoming a new generation of fans.
Never wanting to rest of their laurels, The Temper Trap continue to write music in the background, with aims to head back into the studio together in 2022 to finish off a new body of work.
