[photogallerylink id=93088 align=left]Irelanders Alex Trimble, Sam Halliday, and Kevin Baird are Two Door Cinema Club, a fairly-new-to-the-music scene (they’ve only been around since 2007) trio with an upbeat, driving, electro-rock sound remniscent of The Postal Service or Phoenix. To date, they’ve released one studio album, entitled Tourist History, as well as a number of singles that have been lighting up the UK, Ireland, and U.S. alternative charts. In 2010, the album also won the Choice Music Prize for the Irish Album of the Year, which the band states is the first thing they’ve ever won. We know that it won’t be the last.

[photogallerylink id=93088 align=left]In 2011 thus far, Two Door Cinema Club has released single “What You Know,” which gained even greater popularity as a free download on Tap Tap Revenge 3 and has been touring on the Summer festival circuit (as well as Chicago’s very own Lollapalooza). The band has also announced plans to being working on a second studio album once they return to Northern Ireland.
