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. Veteran British producer Jim Abbis (Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Kasabian) saw enough promise in The Temper Trap’s material to fly to Australia, where he gathered the musicians into Melbourne’s SingSing Studio and helped readied their debut album, Conditions for release in 2009.
‘Sweet Disposition’ a U2-inspired anthem was released that September as an indisputable hit, cracking the Top 40 in multiple countries and featuring in teen hit film 500 Days Of Summer. With 5x Platinum sales in Australia, 3x Platinum sales in the UK (1 million+ sales), and Platinum sales in the United States (1 million+ sales), the single has, to date, clocked up more than 500 million streams on Spotify alone.
Betty Taylor is the friend that holds your hand after your hearts been broken. The band is made up of Sophie Patrick, whose indie hooks and honest poignant lyrics are complimented by Kayla Smart (AKA Dorah Jacson)’s beautiful harmonies and wistful guitar riffs. Helping to strike this perfect balance between power and charm are Clare Chittick on bass and Katie Ishaque on drums.
A four-piece to be reckoned with, these pals have a reputation for captivating audiences when they perform live. Despite only dropping their debut single Stallin’ late last year, Betty Taylor have racked up an impressive number of support spots including the likes of girl in red, Pacific Avenue, The Terrys, Teenage Dads, The Rions and Surf Trash.
After premiering on Good Nights on Triple J, featuring on Home & Hosed and Best New Music with Richard Kingsmill their second single ‘Glitter’ was added to the playlist within the week of release. The band also featured on the ‘Australian Made’ Hot Nights/Abbie Chatfield program with a long form interview running out on air nationally and live filmed performance on all SCA, Hot Night and Abbie Chatfield social media channels.
