Two Door Cinema Club - Are We Ready? (Wreck)

Indie under neon lights can start to look funky. In a good way.

Indie under neon lights can start to look funky. In a good way.



Neon-Banger



“We’re not embracing the pop that’s going on now in a melodic or structural sense. The two biggest influences for me were Prince and Bowie – both total pioneers who straddled that line between out-there pop and avant garde craziness”. 


OK, so the new cut from Two Door Cinema Club isn’t overt pop. It isn’t “avant garde craziness” either, but that doesn’t mean frontman Alex Trimble doesn’t have a point. Though the TDCC DNA runs strong through ‘Are We Ready? (Wreck)’, there’s something new and Actually Reasonably Exciting happening too.

Changing tempo, throwing in a cacophony of chanting children, actually hitting a genuine groove - the first taster from Two Door’s new album ‘Gameshow’ manages to recall bits of both Metronomy and Phoenix at times. Not entirely, obviously; there’s still a good slice of ruddy cheeked indie-pop too, but under the neon lights and a few drinks down even that starts to sound, y’know, pleasingly funky. This show is only just starting.
