Two Door Cinema Club

Talk about fantastic pop that is short, sharp and brilliantly mellifluous to the tone, Two Door Cinema Club has done it with ease. Hailing from Bagnor, Nothern Ireland, the seaside-based boys are all summery guitar riffs and electronic melodies with a tropical shine.

Apart from that, one of the most impressive things about
Two Door Cinema Club is how they appear to craft such infectious melody with the aid of just a laptop-based percussion. Lead singer Alex Trimble is classified as the beat-maker with his percussive chops, and coupled with bassist Kevin Baird's hooky bass lines and guitarist Sam Halliday's jangly guitar riffs, the absence of percussion has little effect and the trio ends up sounding just as infectious with more hooks than a fisherman's hat.

Every now and then a song comes along and it just stuck in your mind, and "Something Good Can Work", leading off the upcoming
Kitsuné Maison 7 compilation is one of those tunes. A quirky combination of jubilant indie-pop and electro, the subtle melodic additives and harmonical vocals makes the track amazingly danceable. Brilliant work and it will definitely end up somewhere in my top played list by the end of the year. "Hands Off My Cash, Monty" reminds me of The Wombats, which is all pop lovin' cheek fun.

Without a doubt, these lovely lovechild of Phoenix and Vampire Weekend are about to make a proper splash. Watch out for the full-length debut around late 2009 or early 2010.
