MANILA, Philippines — Temper Trap closed their set with Sweet Disposition last Saturday, May 18 at Wanderland Music Festival.

I remember edging my way slowly forward through the crowd, both to get a better view and to seek refuge on the grills before the stage (I was standing for almost nine hours and I needed some support, thanks grills!)

I was with my sister, drunk and half-stoned and completely fried, midnight, under the beautiful moon after days without sleeping, living off wine and hummus.

“The second half is where you guys sing,” Dougy said. He sang it: “A moment of love. A dream. A laugh,” and the hundreds of people chorused it back at him. “You start out quiet and then just keep adding volume to it, okay? We’ll just keep building and building.” And eventually, he told us, “You just yell. You just scream as hard and as loud as you can and we’ll try to break the roof off this stage, or something.”

Our voices ascend and rose and he was just tearing on his guitar and then we were yelling, all of us, screaming it at the top of our lungs A MOMENT OF LOVE. A DREAM. A LAUGH. A KISS. A CRY. OUR RIGHTS. OUR WRONGS and it seemed so clear as it soared and soared and filled the air, thousands of voices and I could feel myself filling with bliss, choking on it. One hundred degrees in that open field and yet actual goosebumps raised themselves on my skin; and I thought, this is a cathedral, this is God, this is our flesh and blood and all our tiny souls aching to hold onto whatever this is— then the music faded to a close and still we sang,

“won’t stop ’til it’s over
won’t stop ’til it’s over
won’t stop ’til it’s over
won’t stop to surrender”.
