TRAPS

 

Traps

Artist – Bio

After a successful single release in 2008, leading to an onslaught of live performances including playing with These New Puritans (UK), Children Collide, Pivot and festivals Playground Weekender, Essential Festival and My Filthy Riot, Traps are now on to their second release which is the smashingly limited 7” ‘Standard Life’.

‘Standard Life’ is the second single, but first to vinyl from Sydney based Traps. Its powerful rhythm section and off kilter guitars, complemented by hypnotic vocals create a driving anthem to kick off what is set to be a busy year for these fine gents. This limited press 7” also plays the rare b-side ‘Brainwasher’, a song composed almost entirely on a Casio keyboard fed through washing delays, distortion and flangers, creating an eerie, ghostly sound, a new side to traps not yet heard.

Traps are Kieran Day on vocals, guitar and keys; Ben Hassell on lead guitar and vocals; Matt Edge on bass and Mal Page on drums.
