Two Door Cinema Club

It's interesting how some things 'combine' at times. Not all that long ago, I got an e-mail letting me know about "Two Door Cinema Club" (must be a small cinema, otherwise I'm sure it'll be breaching fire regulations...). I had a listen, read about them - and then in catching up on some podcasts heard them again on Lammo's Radio1 podcast. They're going to be appearing live on that very show on 16 February, so it's clear they've already getting known then - great sign.

I'm not entirely sure how to describe the group. I always like to draw comparisons - it's the easiest way to get a feel for the music after all. However, I'm not really sure there is anything. It's indie music, that's clear enough. But, I can't sort of group them in any way - it's pretty fast paced stuff, good club music, full of harmonies and instrumentalisation (making up words as I go along as ever). What I can say, with confidence, is that I like them. It is the sort of music that gets your attention, and you that want to listen to them. If they're already getting radio airplay, they're definitely one to keep an eye on.

(Apologies for the shorter than usual Unsung this week, I have received a multitude of e-mails with other talents but haven't got the time to listen to them tonight - for reasons which will become apparent before the end of the weekend)

EDIT 13/02/09 18:55 - I've not really thought about the option of this before, but I've been told I'm free to do so. So, I now include in this post the first ever "Asp's Musical Bites Guilt Free Download for your musical listening pleasure" (or AMBGFDFYMLP for short). Something Good Can Work is going to be the band's debut single, and with the airplay they're starting to get you can now say where you heard them first. Or second. Or whatever number this is now :) You just need to click on the title to this post at the top of this post. It'll work differently if you're on an RSS, but I'm not sure how :S
