Two Door Cinema Club is a band that was born in 2007 in Northern Ireland and little by little became known on the burgeoning Irish indie music scene by playing in small bars and clubs. Then they got a record deal with French label Kitsuné Music, famous for having in their ranks bands like Crystal Castles, Hot Chip and Hurts and the rest is history.
With Alex Trimble handling vocals and guitar, Kevin Baird on bass and Sam Halliday on drums, they have finally completed its first album, called Tourist History, which they released this year. Thanks to songs like “Cigarettes In The Theatre ” and “Something Good Can Work” they have been able to tour the world and even managed to conquer an American public that, in many instances, is rather reluctant to accept new groups.
Today the band is emerging as an indie darling, thanks to a very particular sound that blends unique guitar riffs while getting audiences shaking thanks to synthesizers and beats.
They are currently the opening act for bands that are already established in the music business such as autoKratz, Delphic, Foals and Metronomy and recently began a tour to support their recent release.
Two Door Cinema Club will be in Vienna on December 2nd to play the Wuk. If you want to see one of the most promising indie groups in years you can rent apartments in Vienna and enjoy a musical show that will, as my mother says, knock your socks off.
