The Temper Trap Song "Sweet Disposition" in 500 Days of Summer Trailer

Band to Watch: The Temper Trap

Among all the things to love about the trailer for 500 Days of Summer — and there are many! — is the stellar backing song. Performed by the Australian band The Temper Trap, "Sweet Disposition" is exactly the sound of sunny, beachy, leafy-green days when the whole world is yours to discover.

The quartet is about to hit the United States this Spring, with shows in New York, Los Angeles, and SXSW in Austin, and the group's first full-length album is due later this year.

Buzz it is so weird that you posted about this because at the end of the Oscars when they showed a clip of "500 days of Summer" I automatically googled the film, saw the trailer, than downloaded the song. I've been listening to it all morning!
