"…There's a band I met at the airport the other day, a young band called FINGERTRAP, and they gave me a CD when they were off to do a festival in Germany, and I really loved it."
- Tony Hadley, Spandau Ballet

“Fingertrap are a very talented band & great songwriters… I’m certain they’ll go on to achieve great things.”

"These guys are class.”
- Shay, Bassist at Kids In Glass Houses

“That set was terrific!”
- Gruff Rhys, Super Furry Animals

With energy and indie pop sass to rival The Hives and The Fratellis, the last 18 months have seen Fingertrap play raucous shows around the UK, with numerous festival appearances including Frankfurt Musikmesse and The Montreux Jazz Festival, and winning two Europe-wide competitions for their live performances run by industry giants Casio and Shure.

The infectious groove of new single ‘Body Popping’ tells of vocalist Sion's first ever night out drinking in Cardiff, and the teenage insecurities of dancing in front of other people. Watch the 'Body Popping' music video, which was exclusively premiered by Music-News.com - http://dlvr.it/MDB5sp

With fans such as Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Andrew Shay (Kids In Glass Houses) and Chris Kimsey (Producer, Rolling Stones) and the backing of Wise Dog Records and Integrity Publishing, the boys now look to build on previous radio support from Nation Radio Wales, Radio Cardiff, GTFM and BBC Radio Wales.

Fingertrap are Sion (lead vocals & piano), Jimmy (lead guitar & backing vocals), Nick (bass & backing vocals) and Frankie (drums & backing vocals).

FINGERTRAP have recently signed to Wise Dog Records, who will release their single 'Body Popping' on October 28th 2016. FINGERTRAP are also represented by Integrity Publishing LTD.
