The Temper Trap announce UK tour – are they plain wonderful, or just plain?
Australian act The Temper Trap have announced a UK tour to mark their newfound prominence. Details of the London stop are below – expect tickets to shift really quickly.
As NME reports, rhe band were due to play at The Relentless Garage, but the gig will now take place at Heaven, which has a bigger capacity to suit the suddenly bulging fanbase. Tickets for the original venue will still be valid for the Heaven gig, and a batch of new tickets have also gone on sale.
I really like Sweet Disposition, even though it positively screams BBC soundtrack and Virgin Radio drivetime fodder. This is indisputably a good song, with beautiful high-pitched notes and an attractively-epic sound. I’m not nearly so wowed by the rest of The Temper Trap’s current catalogue though; at Field Day it all sounded obvious and plain, if spritely and perfectly pleasant.
But please feel free to disagree, and to tell me I have TTT all wrong…
Wed 23 September – Heaven, Charing Cross (tickets here)

Wow, this band really has hit the big time – the show at Heaven has sold out, as of this morning. Looks like not too many people share my ‘plain’ analysis! Richard
