Biography

London, United Kingdom (2001 – present)

Tender Trap are a London-based indie-pop band featuring Amelia Fletcher, Rob Pursey, John Stanley, Katrina Dixon and Emily Bennett.

The band started in 2001 in London with the idea to record two-minute songs without middle 8s or excessive choruses. The three were previously in Marine Research. Before that Rob and Amelia were in Heavenly. And before that Amelia was in Talulah Gosh. More recently, Rob and Amelia moonlighted in Sportique while John continued his double life as DJ Downfall. The band added Katrina Dixon and Elizabeth Morris in 2009. Morris left the band in 2011 to focus her attention on her other band, Allo Darlin’ and was replaced with Bennett.

    But... but... Amelia Fletcher is pop royalty and The Temper Trap are rubbish. :(

    Oh I agree with all of that, Parade. Tiger Trap is probably my favorite American indie pop band. I don't really care much for The Temper Trap, and like you i've only heard that one song that they seem to be famous for.

    So, basically if I wasn't being so, well... *me*, my shout should have said: Tiger Trap > Tender Trap >>>>>>> The Temper Trap.

    I'm not sure what this says about me, but I knew of this band (Amelia!) yet have only heard *that* song by The Temper Trap (because a friend of mine had the CD in her car but would HAVE THAT SONG ON REPEAT the whole time instead of listening to the full album) and certainly had no idea they were Australian. As an Aussie myself, should I be ashamed? Or perhaps proud? By the way, indiepop fans, let us not forget that there is also Tiger Trap which was the band I got mixed up with Tender Trap prior to this Temper Trap business. So confusing. I think I actually like Tiger Trap best actually... but I guess I shouldn't really say that on here. Oh well.

    Was watching TV the other day and stumbled upon a drama called Ny-Lon that had Oh Katrina as it's theme music! I nearly jumped out of my skin!
