The Temper Trap-Trembling Hands

A month shy of exactly 3 years after their hugely-popular Conditions album was released, The Temper Trap are gearing up for their sophomore effort with their self-titled album due for release on 18th May.

Trembling Hands marks a slight change in style for the band, as their instrumentation on this one feels much a little smoother around the edges, with the sharper and more energetic guitar work substituted for a more atmospheric, grander sound that has a more mature sound. I’ve not yet decided whether I prefer this lane to their previous works but there’s no denying this style still works with all of their previous plus points, namely powerful vocal work, and I’m looking forward to giving that new album a listen upon its release.
