The Temper Trap - Trembling Hands

Song

Trembling Hands è un singolo dei The Temper Trap, estratto dall'album omonimo.

Di Trembling Hands è stato girato un videoclip, diretto da Tom Haines e prodotto da Tiernan Hanby. Ambientato a L'Avana, ha per protagonista una trapezista e gli allenamenti a cui si sottopone prima dell'inizio della sua esibizione.


Album

The Temper Trap is the second studio album by the Australian indie rock band of the same name, The Temper Trap, released in Australia through Liberation Music on 18 May 2012. A deluxe edition of the album was also released on iTunes Store, containing three bonus tracks: "Want", "The Trouble with Pain" and "Everybody Leaves in the End".

It is the band's first album as a five-piece since Joseph Greer was added as a permanent member of the band.

Reception

The Temper Trap received mixed reviews from critics. According to the website Metacritic, which assigns a weighted mean rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average review score of 56/100, based on 13 reviews, which indicates "mixed or average reviews".

Matt Collar wrote a favorable review for AllMusic, stating "there's something less catchy about these tracks, but make no mistake, each song makes that wait well worth it, with a meticulous arrangement that pays off at exactly the right moment." 

Cameron Adams wrote a positive review for Herald Sun, analysing that "Unlike their debut Conditions, this album requires repeated listening and patience before it charms you. But in taking just enough risks while still serving up a safety net in that all-important hit, The Temper Trap should have effectively protected themselves from that dreaded second album syndrome."

A mixed review came from NME's Jamie Fullerton, who wrote that "this is a vision-free second album that sounds like a band who have nothing close to 'Sweet Disposition' in their arsenal. Instead of bashing critics away with brilliant tunes, they find themselves defining faceless bluster-rock."

However he did comment that "The one great moment is the sweeping 'Trembling Hands', which is shaped enough like Keane's equally amazing 'Bedshaped' to hold the attention." Alexis Petridis of The Guardian wrote a negative review, saying that "for all Mandagi's pained sincerity – and he makes Chris Martin sound like a smirking ironist doing inverted commas with his fingers every other line – it all sounds weirdly hollow: music as a means to an end."


The Temper Trap è il secondo album dei The Temper Trap.


Artist

The Temper Trap is an Australian indie rock band formed in 2005 by Dougy Mandagi, Jonathon Aherne, and Toby Dundas.

At the ARIA Music Awards of 2010 in November, The Temper Trap won Best Group and Most Popular Australian Single for "Sweet Disposition". Their eponymous second album was released in late May/early June 2012 under Liberation Music (AUS), Infectious Records (UK) and Glassnote Records (US).

Storia

La band nasce nel 2005. Dougy, il cantante, e Toby, il batterista, lavoravano in un negozio d'abbigliamento e, trovandosi spesso a parlare di musica, un giorno decisero di cominciare a fare qualche jam insieme. Poco tempo dopo si aggiunse un chitarrista e poi Jony, l'attuale bassista. In seguito si unì a loro Lorenzo Sillitto, il quale lavorava in un negozio di musica.

I The Temper Trap iniziarono a farsi conoscere tra il 2008 e i primi mesi del 2009, esibendosi in festival musicali e manifestazioni in giro per il mondo. Nel marzo del 2009 finirono di registrare il loro album di debutto, Conditions, prodotto da Jim Abbiss, già produttore di artisti come Arctic Monkeys e Kasabian.

Lyrics

Turning the ground
I once used to know
People are strangers
Same as before Streets look familiar
I remember the park
Where I buried my head
So deep in my hands
All around me was dark

(chorus)
So throw me a line
Somebody out there help me
I’m on my own
I’m on my own
Throw me a line
Afraid that I have come here
To win you again
With trembling hands

This here city
Has fall along with me once
Won’t find no angels
Sell a map to the lost
This here place
Is too small for two
It took one to realize
When dreaming’s this hard
It’s not meant to come true

(chorus)

Passing the lanes
Looking over the buildings
Time seems to stop
While the millions keep moving
Now here I am
I’m a drop in your ocean
Noise in the crowd
Pushing through your halls of reason

(chorus)

Hear me now make me whole
Hear me now make me whole

(chorus)

There goes the ending
It left me in the war
But I tried everything yea
I’m done with my part

Testo

Sto rivoltando il terreno
Che un tempo conoscevo
Le persone sono estranee
Le stesse di prima Le strade sembrano familiari
Mi ricordo il parco
Dove ho sepolto la testa
A fondo tra le mani
Tutto intorno a me era buio

(rit.)
Perciò lanciatemi una cima
Qualcuno lì fuori mi aiuti
Sono da solo
Sono da solo
Lanciatemi una cima
Temo di essere arrivato qui
Per riconquistarti
Con le mani tremanti

Questa città qui
È crollata insieme a me una volta
Non troverò alcun angelo
A vendere una mappa allo smarrito
Questo posto qui
È troppo piccolo per due
Ce n’è voluto uno per realizzare che
Quando sognare è così difficile
Non è destino che si realizzi

(rit.)

Sto passando per le corsie
Guardando i palazzi
Il tempo sembra fermarsi
Mentre milioni di persone continuano a muoversi
Adesso sono qui
Sono una goccia nel tuo oceano
Rumore tra la folla
Che spinge tra i meandri della tua ragione

(rit.)

Ascoltami ora, rendimi completo
Ascoltami ora, rendimi completo

(rit.)

Arriva la fine
Mi ha lasciato in piena guerra
Ma ho tentato di tutto, sì
Ho fatto la mia parte
