About a Band | Two Door Cinema Club

Alex Trimble (vocals, rhythm guitar, beats and synths), Sam Halliday (lead guitar), Kevin Baird (bass and synths)

How did I discover them? Have I seen them live? What is next for them?

I bought a compilation album earlier this year called Radioactive with loads of different indie songs on, but one of the tracks was What You Know by Two Door Cinema Club and I instantly fell in love with the song; its always the song I choose first from the album. Since then I've listened to this one playlist on 8tracks with loads of their songs on and I just love all their stuff so much. As this is a new obsession of mine, I don't yet have any of their albums but its definitely something that's on my wishlist for my birthday or christmas.

I haven't seen them live yet either but I think they'd be pretty brilliant. I got sooo excited when I heard that they might be playing Latitude this year, so I was quite disappointed when they couldn't make it. I'd love to see them live and sing along to all the songs and hear my favourite ones and feel the atmosphere of another gig.

Their debut album is called Tourist History and their second is called Beacon released in 2010 and 2012 consecutively and they are aiming to release a third studio album in 2015.

Random fact:

Their name came from Sam's mispronunciation of the name of their local cinema, the Tudor Cinema and Two Door Cinema Club was formed from that. They have opened live for other famous bands like Delphic, Foals, Phoenix and Metronomy and now they have been supported by Bastille, Swim Deep, Dog is Dead and the 1975.

Why do I love this band?

I love this band because they have such amazing songs which are all great to sing along to or dance to. I always listen to the 8tracks playlist from below which has some of their best songs in. I would completely love all of their albums so much, because I would probably just listen to them all the time to be honest.

I don't really know what else to say, just that I recommend them to anyone who hasn't heard of them or listened to them already, because I just love them so much. I mean look at their clothes in the picture, what isn't there to love already about them.
