TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB
Since the release of their debut album, Two Door Cinema Club have rapidly become one of the biggest new success stories in UK music. The band has deservedly earned both a devoted word-of-mouth live following and huge critical acclaim. Northern Ireland’s music-mad trio are about to release their highly-anticipated sophomore album, entitled “Beacon” which they will present at the Rockhal on 28 February 2013.
In 2010, Two Door Cinema Club released their debut album “Tourist History” which is undeniably pop, and it draws on electronica/electro, rock and afro-beats without ever recalling hopeful dilettantes, but the sum is greater than any ‘indie electro pop’ parts. Their music has been loosely compared to the likes of Death Cab for Cutie and Broken Social Scene but without a definitive capacity to be pigeon-holed. Their incendiary live shows have become internationally renowned, resulting in the band selling out big venue tours all over the world.
Following their headline slot on February’s NME Awards Tour, the band, Alex Trimble, Kevin Baird and Sam Halliday, travelled to LA in April 2012 to record their new album with acclaimed producer Jacknife Lee (Bloc Party, U2, REM) in his home studios. The result is a bold statement of intent; an ambitious and heartfelt selection of tracks showcasing a stunning depth of songwriting and a broader, maturer sound.
Alex states “Beacon is a much more intimate record than our first, but at the same time, it’s much bigger and more inclusive. Trying to find that balance has been our goal for a long time and this record takes us one step closer to the band we’ve dreamt of becoming. Working with Jacknife Lee was a joy and a pleasure.”
“Beacon” looks set to make it’s mark, shining brightly and guiding the highly-exciting Irish trio into the next chapter of their rapidly evolving musical journey. Alex Trimble of Two Door Cinema Club has even performed at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in London. On 28 February 2013 the trio will make a stopover at the Rockhal in Luxembourg. Grab your tickets and take your seats; it’s going to be a blockbuster!
