The Trouble With Templeton Premiere Snowbird Remix Of 'Soldiers'"Rookie" LP Out May 13 On Bella Union. The Trouble With Templeton play The Great Escape 5/8

The Trouble With Templeton is the creation of singer/songwriter Thomas Calder, the 23-year-old who formed the band in 2011. The following year saw TTWT expand to a 5-piece, the new members complimenting Calder’s emotive vocals and songwriting with a collaborative.

With their debut release The Trouble With Templeton have crafted a record full of warmth and heart, whilst displaying a willingness to make music that’s not afraid to affect or surprise. “The only prerequisite we had going in was that if we loved the song and we believe in it, then we were going to record it,” says Thomas. “The element of surprise is something we really enjoy in music, something we’re always shooting for. You don’t want to know where a song is going from the first two lines.”As a result, the album is a whirling dervish of moods and colours, of tempos and genres, melodies and layers, tackling concepts behind relationships and the way unique human narratives emerge from different viewpoints. “It’s held together by something undefinable,” reckons Thomas. “For me it’s a whole kaleidoscope of sounds and genres, but there’s something holding it together, and that’s us as a band.”

Before signing to Bella Union, The Trouble With Templeton released the single ‘Six Months In A Cast’ on the Communion label, the video of which can be viewed HERE.
