10 for 2010: #6 – Two Door Cinema Club

By on Saturday, 5th December 2009 at 12:00 pm

A couple of weeks back, we asked you to vote for your top 10 artists for 2010. We had almost 600 votes, and we’re now going to countdown the top 10 over the next 10 days, finishing with our number 1 on 10th December at midday. Today, at number 6 are Northern Ireland’s very own Two Door Cinema Club, who we first introduced way back in January…

Two Door cinema Club (side)Fresh from the Phoenix – inspired school of indie pop greatness, Two Door Cinema Club have taken their time to build a collection of tunes that will catapult them to greatness in 2010.

Having been compared to The Postal Service, Vampire Weekend and Phoenix, you’ll immediately realise that they’re very much connoisseurs of the short three minute angular pop tune – don’t think however that they’re just a bunch of one-hit wonders. Debut single “Something Good Can Work” was just a firing shot back in March before they released “I Can Talk” at the end of November. Their B-Sides and EP tracks are just as good, and show great promise for the release of their debut album early next year.

Signed to the cooler-than-cool Kitsune label, they’ve recently been on tour with another of 2010’s bright hopes, Delphic, who we saw together a co-headlining tour back in October – quite honestly live Two Door Cinema Club have more energy than a bunch of five year olds on pure sugar.

If multi-coloured guitar pop is your cup of tea, Two Door Cinema Club are the kids to watch in 2010 for you.
