Circus Trees - "Trap Door"

Massachusetts' based sibling band Circus Trees have shared one last single with us before their album comes out, and it shows a little bit of a change of sound. "Trap Door" is a little more reserved than we're used to hearing from the band, but it still packs an emotional punch. The track starts off as a little more of a straightforward alt-rock song with some edges of punk. For Circus Trees, this one is almost a ballad, but it's a little too loud for that. It fits into the harder edged shoegaze sound that we've been all about lately, although it's more of a rock based dream pop song more than shoegaze. "Trap Door" stays restrained a little longer than you'll expect it to, but once the crescendo hits and Circus Trees let it all loose, it's like a freight train of sonic force careening out of your speakers.
