Glam spoke to Temper Trap, the band behind smash hit “Sweet Disposition”, ahead of their Sold Out show at Fat Controller tonight as part of the venue’s 2nd Birthday Celebration.
Thick as Thieves is your first album which features co-writing with people outside the band. Were you initially reluctant or excited about this prospect and how did it come about?
I think we’ve always been open to new ways of pushing ourselves as a band. Early in the 3rd album writing sessions, Dougy took one of our demo’s to Malay, who’s worked with Frank Ocean among many others, and he brought a really unique perspective to the song. From then on we were really open to what other people could bring to our process.
