Two Door Cinema Club is an indie rock band from Ireland. Having recently released their newest album False Alarm in June, the band has certainly stepped up their game with an incredibly theme-devoted album. The band’s tracklist and lyrics revolve around the theme of the Internet. To complement this lyrical theme, their tour this year consists of a fabulous set-up at each concert venue. Their use of lighting, stage backdrop, instruments and the outfits that the band members wore reflects their bold album’s colour scheme: red, blue and yellow. Vocalist and guitarist, Alex Trimble, truly embodied this with his glimmering blue suit and yellow turtleneck underneath. This concert set-up was then used in collaboration with the video screens behind the band, which (throughout the concert) presented visuals about the digital world.
The songs played at the O2 Arena in London were varied across the band’s four albums: Tourist History (2010), Beacon (2012), Gameshow (2016) and False Alarm (2019). As a big fan of Two Door Cinema Club, I was incredibly happy to relive my teenage years for a few moments by reminiscing over being obsessed with the song “What You Know”. Still, I think it was perfect that the band centred their concert around their most recent album’s theme even though they didn’t focus their concert tracklist on this album.
Two Door Cinema Club are reaching the end of their tour dates. However, I have no doubts that they will be playing at some UK festivals next summer.
