The Malthusian Trap are a band based in Plymouth, Devon. We are part electronic, part mechanical and a 1/6 human. A hybrid of styles born from a frustration of the generic. In a short space of time we have played most major cities in the UK, appeared on various radio stations and were tipped by BBC Introducing in Devon as one of the sounds to look out for in 2016. We are an independent band who are sick of seeing clone after clone after clone. We do things as we think they should be done. If you don’t like it then you know what to do.
