The Temper Trap – “The Sea is Calling”

The_album_cover_for_the_2012_album_The_Temper_TrapThis song from Australian band The Temper Trap always leaves me with a feeling of bittersweet nostalgia, which probably has to do with it’s lucid, but at the same time almost sleepy vocals and beautiful guitar melodies that seem to drift you off into another world but still reminds you of the one you left behind. Dougy Mandagi’s unique voice seems to radiate with sound and the other band members do an amazing job of playing up his strong suits. You may know The Temper Trap already from their single “Sweet Disposition,” so you must already know that this particular band has the capacity to be depressing, but have that one chord or that one lyric that lifts the song up at the last second. “The Sea is Calling” is from The Temper Trap’s second and latest album, The Temper Trap, which was released in 2012.
