STAGEMix Up Stage
Two Door Cinema Club’s 2016 album ‘Gameshow’ has already spawned three huge singles ‘Are We Ready? (Wreck)’, ‘Bad Decisions’, and ‘Ordinary’ and was a mainstay on triple j last year. Citing an eclectic range of influences ranging from Prince, Bowie and Chic to Krautrock, Neo Soul and modernist pop, the band have stretched far beyond their traditional sound to fully embrace pop sensibilities and funk-laden melodies.
The band have just announced ‘Lavender,’ an infectiously off-kilter head nodder of a single, melding sparse funk with neo R&B pop and perfectly captures singer Alex Trimble’s ability to embrace big pop elements, with a modern twist that shuns the usual formulas.
Off the back of their colossal 13 date UK tour, which sold out in a day and saw the band play to over 70,000 fans over a frantic two-week period, the unveiling of Lavender kickstarts what’s sure to be another busy time for the Bangor, Ireland three-piece.
