Never letting the ball drop, Trap Door and Finn Keenan have collaborated once again on Trap Door’s latest single Wake Up. They had a hard act to follow considering the video to Lata Town was so epic and so well received.
Not only has it been successfully pulled off but Trap Door now have a distinctive style, their very own flavour. It is about making the most of situations, seeing the light, enjoying life. It is forward thinking and never ending. It is youth as a mentality and a way of life. It is disregard for banalities and embracing diversity and fun. Wake Up is feel good, mood jostling audio and visual.

Award winning director Saam Farahmand creates an equally cool, edgy and sexual video to accompany Tom Vek’s “Aroused”. Having completed music videos for the likes of The Klaxons and Cheryl Cole, nothing short of perfection could be expected from Farahmand and nothing short of perfection is offered. Quite frankly, both video and song are addictive.
