THE TEMPER TRAP
PHOENIX CONCERT THEATRE, TORONTO / AUGUST 7TH
On record, THE TEMPER TRAP have grown up quite a bit since their debut record Conditions and their return to Toronto’s Phoenix Concert Theatre crammed that into a neat little exhibit. This performance compared to others felt more comfortable as the Melbourne quintet blanketed their pop songs with layers of visceral indie rock that constantly switched between sweet tones and edgier resurrections. There was an odd amount of familiarity as the group are no strangers to the city, but the night felt refreshing with The Temper Trap flexing a few new muscles.
