Trembling Hands (4:39)

Cover of The Temper Trap

From The Temper Trap and 3 other releases

” Longtime live keyboardist Joseph Greer, now an official fifth member, had been playing a riff during soundchecks, which Mandagi hummed over. It turned into “Trembling Hands,” one of the first songs finished for the second album and their most heartfelt song to date.
“I always thought it had a Coldplay tinge to it,’’ Mandagi says. “Coldplay slash Snow Patrol. Which is not a bad thing…” However inside whispers suggested “Trembling Hands” was “too Coldplay” for Mandagi’s liking, especially when it started being mentioned as their comeback single.

“We were tossing up between “Need Your Love” or “Trembling Hands.”
“If I played it to a few friends, they liked it, they said it sounds like Coldplay. My worry was I didn’t want to come back after a year and a half with a song that sounds like Coldplay as the first single. Even if people don’t like “Need Your Love” at least it sounds like us. “

    I'm a big fan of Coldplay, but I don't find this song so Coldplay-ish (maybe there's something slightly similar to Shiver) as almost everybody says. I only find it beautiful :)

    Oh so beautiful and uplifting. Plus, the voice is absolutely spectacular. A bit of Suede, a bit of Starsailor, but still recognizable
