Two Door Cinema Club home
Name a cool ginger singer. Go on, we bet you can’t.
Mick Hucknall? Geri Halliwell? Tiffany? Not easy is it? But wait, here come Two Door Cinema Club with their freckly faced frontman Alex Trimble and suddenly it rocks to be a redhead. Gingers everywhere must be offering silent prayers of thanks.
Ok, so their cherubic wee faces might make you look old by comparison, but like all good pop bands, they make you feel like a teenager. When they get it right, their sound is pure jump up and down, ‘beat you to the dancefloor’ euphoria that quite simply reeks of teen spirit.
Hailing from Northern Ireland, the electro-indie three-piece got together in 2007 and later jacked in university places to sign to the French label Kitsuné. Their debut album Tourist History was released earlier this year and their live shows have been packed to the gills with skinny jeans wearing-lovlies and record industry types wishing they’d signed them. However, despite positive reviews, it’s fair to say that Two Door Cinema Club are a singles band. ‘Undercover Martyn’ is their finest moment to date; a joyous, short, sharp, shock of a pop record with a bouncy sing-a-long chorus, plinky plonk keys and angelic vocals. If ever there was a soundtrack for your next drunken liaison in the darkest corners of Razzmatazz, this is it.
