Dublin-based Trap Door issues new single, “Wake Up,” echoes raw energy of Joe Strummer

Trap Door

Dublin’s Trap Door brings the goods.

I’ve got a reason for believing
That just dreaming gets you through
Stop complaining, you’re always blaming
We can get them, me and you

Dublin’s Trap Door hits hard from the word “go” with their just-released single “Wake Up,” an alterna-ska romp which echoes the late Joe Strummer mixed with elements of Australian hip-hop outfit the Herd. The resultant hook-filled four minutes succeed, drawing listeners in to an instantly repeatable trip through alt-rock, ska and retro-punk. The song’s available on the band’s EP Lata Town, the title track of which proves the new single is no fluke. These guys know what they’re doing, and they’re easily on the verge of wider exposure. Forget “Dublin’s lost and found” — ” Trap Door’s ready to cross the ocean and give America a run for our musical money!
