Northern Irish threesome are precision-engineered to spread enjoyment

Two Door Cinema Club: 'There is a Tiggerish enthusiasm to their music that encourages bouncing, clapping, arm-waving and generally having a good time'

Bouncy: if there is one word that sums up this hot young Northern Irish band, that would be the one; there is a Tiggerish enthusiasm to their music that encourages bouncing, clapping, arm-waving and generally having a good time, which is exactly what happened at last night's gig: a festive atmosphere prevailed, Two Door Cinema Club played a short, sharp set that lasted for little more than an hour, and they sent the crowd out into the early spring night buzzing.

At times Two Door Cinema Club seemed like a techno band. Hypnotic choruses, thumping drums, repeated guitar licks, rumbling bass, dazzling backlights – it was almost rave-y

Great evening at The Roundhouse seeing a band I knew very little about apart from having just bought the album and frantically trying to "swot up on it" beforehand. Now I can't stop playing it as it is such a tonic. I was initially put off by the dance music build up but it definitely didn't put me off. My one regret is that by the time I realised just how good they are, their next London gig had already sold out.
