Trapdoor Social:  After meeting in an Environmental Analysis program at Pomona College, Trapdoor Social’s Merritt Graves and Skylar Funk bonded over a deep concern for the future of the planet. The two writers bring very different styles to the studio, and what results is a driving, emotive alt-pop experience.The duo introduced themselves with the “Death Of A Friend” EP, released in December 2012.  Produced by Curt Schneider, it features Death Cab For Cutie’s Jason McGerr on drums.  They will donate 100% of proceeds from their forthcoming full-length album to solar energy projects in Los Angeles, in collaboration with Homeboy Industries, a local non-profit that re-trains former gang members for jobs in the economies of the future. Their point is clear – climate change is an urgent matter, and music must be one way to build support for solutions.

Earlier this year, Trapdoor Social’s “Like You Never” was the #1 listener requested track on KROQ’s “Locals Only” show, and they have since enjoyed radio play from a number of major market stations around the US, including regular rotation on Q87.7 in Chicago.
