Newcomers speak out during show at Scottish bash

Fast-rising Australian popsters The Temper Trap made their first appearance at theT In The Park festival today (July 10), during which they expressed amazement at some fans’ toilet habits.

The band played a warmly-received show in the T Break tent in the early evening at the Scottish bash shortly after the gates had opened on the festival site.

“It’s our first year here, it’s a crazy festival,” frontman Dougy Mandagi told the crowd shortly into the set. “I saw a girl pee against a fence!”

The band went on to play their brand of epic dance-influence pop as the amount of people entering the tent rapidly increased.

During the percussion-led ‘Drum Song’ Mandagi picked up some drum sticks and flitted between playing a floor tom drum and hitting them together, before the band ended with ‘Science Of Fear’.

“We hope to come back soon, we love this country,” Mandagi said before heading off stage.
