BADGERTRAP hail from Bristol UK, a city that has always attracted mavericks, revolutionaries, troublemakers and radicals.
Described mainly by fans as being killer tunes that are light and funny and then suddenly challenging. BADGERTRAP’s core is made up of front-man Hal Camplin(vocals/guitar), Andrew Brown (percussion) and Steve Dunk(brass/keyboards). The BADGERTRAP sound fixes on a dynamic beat and strutting melodies with raw and dominating vocals.
On recent South coast tour Lynn Hasti Portsmouth RMA said:
They were guitar and drums with a definite punky twang, reminding me of The Pixies, Talking Heads and Mountain Goats at their abstract best. Just as I contemplated how odd it was watching a man in a badger suit, on a stage, rapping, the badger head went and instead I was watching a man sized badger doing the same. Quite, quite unique. You’ll be glad you’ve found them – sup on another beer or whatever floats your boat and dive into BADGERTRAP’s surreal feel.
