The music video for The Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition” made its world premiere today on Vevo.com. Directed by Daniel Eskils (Caribou, Boys Noize), the footage was shot in the band’s hometown of Melbourne, Australia. This is a different video than you might have seen before, plus the song sounds a bit different as well. Either way I love this song and can’t wait to see them live April 2nd at Webster Hall in NYC.
The Temper Trap is currently in the middle of a hugely successful North American tour in support of their critically acclaimed debut album, Conditions, out now on Glassnote/Columbia. 2010 has seen them play to enthusiastic, sell-out crowds across the country and Canada, with a stop at Austin’s SXSW and Coachella to follow in mid-April. Full tour dates are located below.
“Sweet Disposition” became ubiquitous through usages in the sleeper hit film 500 Days of Summer, a massive Diet Coke campaign premiering during the Academy Awards, a multimedia platform Rhapsody advertising promotion, scoring numerous national TV shows, and a Chrysler branding campaign. The single is blowing up at radio, being played on over 40 stations throughout the U.S., with a cumulative audience of more than 30 million.
