Fingertrap are a four-piece, alternative pop, rock band from Rhondda Cynon Taff, South Wales. They are rapidly emerging and leaving their impacting mark on the South Wales Music Scene with their distinct upbeat sound, quirky lyrics and energetic stage presence.

Since being voted 'StudentBeans.com’s - Second Best Student Band of 2012' (with over 14,000 votes) they have gone from strength to strength. Within eight months of starting the band, the lads were invited to perform at 'JAR Music's - The One's To Watch Showcase' at the O2 Academy Islington, London. Fingertrap were invited to record with top producer Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Ocean Colour Scene, Paolo Nutini) at Magic Garden Studios in Wolverhampton. They released their debut single 'Return If Found' in July 2013, along with a music video that can be found on the band’s Youtube channel (among other videos). Upon it's release, 'Return If Found' had been selected as 'Record of the Month' by theunsignedmusicshow.com and many requests were recieved for the track to be used on many promotional films. Following the success of the single, the debut 5-track EP 'Until We Get There' was released in September 2013, along with a 'SELL OUT' EP launch party at Buffalo Bar Cardiff. Recently the EP 'Until We Get There' was archived at the 'National Screen & Sound Archive of Wales', which preserves, promotes and celebrates the sound and moving image heritage of Wales. All releases are available through iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify etc.
