TEMPER TRAP
The Temper Trap is an Australian indie rock band which formed in 2005. The core members are Dougy Mandagi on vocals and guitar, Jonathon Aherne on bass guitar and vocals, Toby Dundas on drums and programming and Lorenzo Sillitto on guitar, keyboards and vocals. They are supplemented on tours with Joseph Greer on keyboards and guitar. In 2008, the group relocated from Melbourne to London. The band released their debut album Conditions in June 2009 to favourable reviews and commercial success; it peaked at No. 9 on the ARIA Albums Chart and into the top 30 on the UK Albums Chart. Its lead single, "Sweet Disposition", peaked in the top 10 on the Belgian, Irish and UK Singles Charts and reached No. 14 on the ARIA Singles Chart. At the ARIA Music Awards of 2010 in November, The Temper Trap won 'Best Group' for their album Conditions and 'Most Popular Australian Single' for "Sweet Disposition".

Papa have found a way to reconcile their inborn melodious eclecticism with a face-punching wham-bam that only slightly suggests the old, old punk rock it'll invariably be lumped in with. (But that'd be the boundary-smashing punk art of Wire/PiL as opposed to the doctrinaire leather jackets 'n' spiky hair of the Clash or whoever .) Anyway, Papa've got a few tracks where they're exploring some freshly hummable kinds of noise, and their live set is reportedly a total sandblast.
