The Temper Trap

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.

Their debut album ‘Conditions’ achieved widespread success, launching into the Top 10 on the ARIA charts and Top 30 in the UK. The album is now certified Double Platinum in Australia, Gold in the UK and has sold over 750,000 units globally.

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. The moment coincides with the release of a collaboration dating back to 2012 between the band and the beloved Mac Miller on their hit track ‘Love Lost’. Released in Late July as a part of Mac’s posthumous record ‘I Love Life, Thank You’ the track debuted at #20 on the US Spotify charts and has already been streamed over 50 million times becoming an instant fan favourite.
