WFNX Presents Two Door Cinema Club Bombay Bicycle Club, The Lonely Forest
September 8, 2011
Two Door Cinema Club are an Electropop/Indie Rock band from Bangor and Donaghadee, Northern Ireland formed in 2007. They are signed to French record label Kitsuné Music, through which they released their debut album Tourist History on 1 March 2010.
The band’s name came about after one of the members mispronounced the name of local cinema Tudor Cinema, and this stuck. In 2007, Two Door Cinema Club was formed, and following an increased interest in their music on their MySpace page, they gave up their university places and began work on studio material. An EP “Four Words To Stand On” was released in January 2009, and they then began to record their debut album at Eastcote Studios in London with Eliot James in July 2009. In September, the band began mixing the record with Phillipe Zdar at Motorbass, his studio in Paris.
In December 2009, Two Door Cinema Club were featured in the BBC’s Sound Of 2010 Poll, which was decided by 165 British “tastemakers”.
The album was preceded by the singles “I Can Talk” and “Undercover Martyn”, and “Something Good Can Work” was released in May 2010. The band’s next single “Come Back Home” is released on 12th July 2010.
Two Door Cinema Club have opened for a number of bands including; autoKratz, Delphic, Foals and Metronomy, as well as for Phoenix during several dates of their 2010 U.S. tour. The band tour the UK in Sept/Oct 2010 including two sold out shows at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire.
