The guys in Trapdoor Social might be the first environmental analysts-turned-pop stars. Merritt Graves and Skylar Funk (how is this not already someone's porn name?) met at Pomona College in Southern California in the Environmental Analysis program. In between studying solar and other renewable energies, and getting all Captain Planet and shit, the boys made music. Death of a Friend is their debut EP, released in December, on which the rollicking "Away" is featured.
