The Temper Trap is Dougy Mandagi, Jonathon Aherne, Toby Dundas & Joseph Greer. They first came to prominence in 2009 with their acclaimed debut album Conditions, which, propelled by the global hits Sweet Disposition, Fader and Love Lost, saw them crash land into the charts worldwide. The band’s self-titled second album spawned the hits Trembling Hands and Need Your Love, which won them a number of prestigious ARIA awards, and caught the attention of Coldplay and The Rolling Stones, all of whom asked the band to join them on tour. They are following up with their third record, Thick As Thieves, to be released June 10th, which marks the first time the band has collaborated with outside songwriters in their history, with striking results. Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey, Sia, Bat For Lashes) worked on ‘Fall Together’, whilst the album also features collaborations with Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), Malay, co-writer & producer of Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange and Pascal Gabriel (Ladyhawke, Goldfrapp). Working with these exceptional producers and co-writers allowed The Temper Trap to explore a new musical ground while remaining true to their inimitable signature sound.
