Without wishing to sound too cold you should pay attention to The Temper Trap for one very good reason. It's not their catchy songs, great music skills or anthemic qualities, it's the involvement of Mr Korda Marshall.

Marshall has been involved in the careers of the likes of Muse, Foals, Madonna, Green Day, James Blunt and Red Hot Chili Peppers. He has worked with massive labels like RCA, Warners and Atlantic but has now opted out to restart his Infectious Records imprint and focus on running a succesful indie label.

That is where The Temper Trap come in. They are the first new signings to Infectious and have already featured on the BBC Sound of 2009 longlist. Their inclusion is not merely through strong connections though. The band have been compared to TV On The Radio and U2 amongst others and it's clear to see why. Their 2006 self titled EP is a glorious blend of modern beats and instrumentation mixed with an old school emotive soul mainly deriving from Dougy Mandagi's excellent vocals. A single, 'The Sweet Disposition', is due for release soon and an album is being recorded with Jim Abiss (Arctic Monkeys, Ladytron).

Definitely a band to keep a keep eye on. Click here to watch more Temper Trap videos from BBC Introducing.
