Airplay Band of The Month - Trapdoor Social

Trapdoor Social Profile picture
Meet Trapdoor Social, a Los Angeles duo taking Jango's alt-rock scene by storm. In their first three months on Jango Airplay they've managed to wow almost 30,000 fans, and with Popscores consistently in the 90's they're bound for success. We're happy to present them as Jango Band of the Month - below you can read about what inspires the duo and watch their brand new video. Enjoy!

Describe Trapdoor Social's sound in one sentence?
- A wildflower trampled into the mud, then picked up, dusted off and sent into space in a harmony-fueled rocket.

When was Trapdoor Social formed and where?
- November of 2011, in Los Angeles

Trapdoor Social Members
Name three people who have influenced your music, and tell us why? Living or dead.
- Three bands that really taught us what Rock is are Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, and Third Eye Blind. The first is a bit more Merritt's feel, and the third is a bit more Skylar.

How do you connect with fans and get them involved in your music?
- We love talking with fans on our Facebook, Twitter, Fanbridge, etc., but nothing beats rocking out live with people at shows.

What do you like the most about Jango Airplay?
- The fans! People are reaching out to us from all around the world, telling us they found us on Jango. It's amazing to have their support! Many are too far away to reach at this early stage, but we dream of touring to all sorts of wild places and linking up with our early supporters.

Is there any recent project you'd like to share with us? Tell us about it.
- We recently released our first big music video for our song, Inertia. It's a twisted vision of how to get love and a fun way to help our fans find their own interpretation and meaning in the song. You can check it out at trapdoorsocial.com/video or watch it here.

Are you guys playing live and do you have any shows coming up soon?
- We sure are! Mark your calendars for August 31st at the Bootleg Theater in L.A. We're pumped!
