The Temper Trap

Since forming in 2005, Australian band The Temper Trap has moved from strength to strength after a series of successful albums and tours.

Their flagship single “Sweet Disposition” skyrocketed the band to mainstream success after appearing in the film (500) Days of Summer. Subsequently, the song has featured in numerous other films, trailers, commercials and television series.

With a clean, consistent public image – The Temper Trap is easy to love. Their distinct, recognizable style and a strong promotional arm has seen their music associated with many of today’s current trends and subcultures.

Among some of my favourite songs from The Temper Trap are:

  • Love Lost
  • Trembling Hands
  • Soldier On

The Middle East

With absolutely no geographical relation to its name, The Middle East is an Australian band based in Queensland.



They have officially disbanded after playing their last concert – Splendour in the Grass in August 2011, leaving behind some really good songs and a number of disappointed fans.

Listening to The Middle East is a subtle, yet engaging emotional journey. With a diverse variety of styles, unconventional instruments and well placed vocal harmonization, I find their music most suitable during a quiet search for inspiration or highway driving at night.

Among some of my favourite songs from The Middle East are:

  • Blood
  • Lonely
  • Deep Water
