The Temper Trap

Conditions

This Melbourne quartet's debut album pulses with the Britpop cool of Coldplay on songs like “Love Lost,” a mini-epic of an opener where guitars rhythmically throb to approximate heart palpations — though here Mandagi’s versatile voice bends up, as he croons soulfully similar to Mick Hucknall of Simply Red. And the darker, starker hues of “Fools” seem to come from a place inspired by the melodic complexities of Radiohead’s better moments on In Rainbows.
