Video of the Moment #768: The Temper Trap

By on Tuesday, 17th April 2012 at 6:00 pm

When the Temper Trap told NME their new album “could be considered dark and gloomy”, evidently they weren’t talking about the first single from it, ‘Need Your Love’, which at least from the outset sounds like a forward-thinking power ballad.

Unnecessary violence in this promo in my opinion but I get their point, which was to rip off a classic ’80s ‘underdog’ film. It seems like ages ago but the Aussies were underdogs of the music world not so long ago. Even I had reservations about their first album ‘Conditions’, though I felt much better when on a sunny afternoon in Boston Dougy Mandagi told me he didn’t think they sounded all that great when they got into the studio and recorded. (Honest and humble. Bless.)

Read Cheryl’s review of the single here. We’ve also got SXSW and DC gig reports from last month as well. And in due time, we have some exciting UK Temper Trap news for you involving a major music festival in May. All will be revealed soon…
