We are excited to send you the highly anticipated single ‘The Move’ from environmental activist musical collective Trapdoor Social. Trapdoor Social is a Los Angeles based independent rock band with a mission. The indie rock genius’ have a record of fundraising and activism supporting sustainability, producing outdoor solar-powered concerts around the US, which if you ask us is fucking badass!
Entitled ’The Move’, the infectious track is inspired by the idea of a growing movement of people who want to leave the world better than they found it. With funk-fuelled guitars, impassioned vocals and a contagious chorus the single is sure to be stuck in your head all day long!
With it’s origins in a college environmental studies program, the band has a record of fundraising and activism to promote sustainability. Starting in 2015 Trapdoor Social branched off from the usual mix of club/radio/college shows and began producing outdoor, solar-powered concerts and events around the US, including Sunstock Solar Festival, which is takes place in Los Angeles annually. Their other projects combining music with activism have benefitted Homeboy Industries, Mesa Ridge High School, and Kids Cancer Connection.
The band’s music is energetic and passionate, with lyrics that play with love, philosophy, and social critique. Several of the band’s songs— “Away”, “Fine on My Own,” “Sunshine,” and “Wining as Truth” – have received significant airplay around the country, a national TV ad placement and success on Spotify’s ‘Discover Weekly’.
Since Sunstock ’17, the band has been working on an LP that will be their fourth release. Their new single “Hold Me Down” blends surf rock and captivating indie pop featuring anthemic melodies and jangly guitars. Trapdoor Social is set to release a full album following around the new year, and a national tour in the spring of 2019.
Written and performed by Trapdoor Social. Produced by Curt Schneider.
