In a desperate attempt to avoid ‘real work’ – and in one individual’s case, to avoid capture – the four members of Bare Traps dragged their sorry arses to university from various parts of England. Not deemed ‘hip’ enough to live in any of the cool parts of London, they were resigned to Harrow at the end of the ‘BakerPoo’ line. Founding members, Luke and Scott, were brought together through a mutual appreciation of tea and disco biscuits. At the end of 2014 they made the joint decision to become rock stars and have been living that delusion ever since. At the end of 2016 the inordinate amount of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll just became too boring for the other two former members of the band, so they decided to quit the celebrity lifestyle in favour of something far more cool – paying mortgages. Fortunately, friends, Sam and Liam were on hand to swiftly take up their mantle as international indie sensations. Bare Traps are unabashedly out to make pop music catchier than the clap and are hell-bent on infecting everybody.
