Release Date: Out Now
I have to admit that the idea of an environmental activist musical collective, which is how Trapdoor Social are described in their press blurb, brought images of the likes of the Levellers or Enya to mind. So, I was pleasantly surprised to hear the new single from the LA outfit in all its funky, hip-pop glory. ‘The Move’ fits neatly in alongside the likes of the Weeknd, Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake (with a little Nile Rodgers in the background) thanks to the groove of the rhythm section, the tight funky guitars and the high-pitched vocals. Trapdoor Social have been known to run solar powered gigs in their quest to save the planet but that doesn’t mean they can’t have fun doing it so everyone wins, I guess.
