the malthusian trap

The Malthusian Trap are an electronic indie band who have become quickly known for their driving beats, catchy bass lines, stand out guitar riffs and lyrical content. The band are inspired by the iconic bands of the Madchester era, rave culture and UK grime. Their self released debut EP Palpitations was pressed onto vinyl and received acclaim not just for it’s beefy sound but it’s aesthetic design qualities as it was an artistic collaboration with the critically acclaimed street artist Mr Skillmatik.  The EP was recorded at Batter Street Studios in Devon and was mastered by the multi award winning StarDelta Mastering who have worked with a whole host of internationally acclaimed artists.

Ever since bursting onto the scene in Early 2016 The Malthusian Trap have been regular performers in legendary live music venues across the UK as well as playing sporadic dates in Europe. Their sound has been championed by many including blog writers, BBC Introducing and industry heads.
