The Temper Trap. Album Of The Week.
One of my personal most anticipated albums this year is Temper Trap’s self titled EP. Their 2009 debut album “Conditions” was a work of art and I’m hoping this one will be the same.
Introducing the album to the world with “Need Your Love” it perfectly sets the scene for what’s to come. A pounding beat provides the perfect backdrop as frontman Dougy Mandagi showcases his strong yet fragile voice as he documents his broken heart. “Oh / I need your love / I need your love / I need you now / I need you”.
The Temper Trap will be playing a sold out show at The Forum Theatre in Melbourne, The Sydney Opera House in Sydney and Triple J’s One Night Stand in Queensland this week. I wonder how their new tunes will translate in concert… And if you weren’t lucky enough to score tickets, they’ll be back in November with Coldplay. Check out concert dates here.
