Conditions (White Vinyl) LP
A lot of water has passed under the bridge since The Temper Trap's delay soaked opening to 'Sweet Disposition' first began causing a stir on Australian radio late last year. The track was the first taster of their recording sessions with UK producer Jim Abbiss (UNKLE, Arctic Monkeys, Adele). The track instantly won the band a steady stream of influential fans around the globe. The new year only saw the momentum gather pace. They signed a worldwide record deal (ex ANZ & Nth America) with Korda Marshall's newly re-launched Infectious Records (previously home to Muse, Ash & Garbage), scored a trailer and film placement for Sundance buzz US film '500 Days of Summer'. Now seems a pertinent time to focus in the reason were all here in the first place - the music, the songs, the voice, and more specifically this Melbourne born, soon London bound acts' long awaited debut album Conditions. Completed in early March in a final London session with Abiss, following a previous 4 week stint at Melbourne's Sing Sing Studios, the debut album is unquestionably set to deliver upon the immense promise created by acclaimed singles Science of Fear and Sweet Disposition. It is a collection of songs equally ambitious as bold and crucially in the modern era, each song demands shared billing. From the soaring Down River, resplendent with strings, horns & choirs to the spine- tingling Solder On, the tribal percussive beat of live favourite Drum Song and transcendent Love Lost, which somehow wields the common ground between neo-soul and wide-screen alternative rock.
