Northern Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club are coming to Dundee to do a small album launch gig at Fat Sams on June 25.
In the words of the band, the new album False Alarm finds them “gloriously unshackled and creatively instinctive, scanning and satirising the social and environmental woes of 2019 and beyond through the prism of wonderfully off-kilter pop, simultaneously borrowing from and warping elements of future pop, disco, rock, funk and soul.”
Recorded in sessions between London and LA with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, The Killers), it’s an LP that takes the familiar and twists it, to startling and stimulating effect.
It all makes for a wide-eyed, culture-encompassing leap forward for the band, a record liable to break, ruin and remould pop in 2019.
Frontman Alex Trimble said: “We’re trying to create a new world for this record to exist in, and we want that to go everywhere from the music videos, the artwork, the live show.”
