New Two Door Cinema Club: "Sleep Alone"


Two Door Cinema Club are back to their baseline-hopping indie pop ways on upcoming second album Beacon, due out September 4 on Glassnote Records. The album's first single, "Sleep Alone" is exactly why the North Irish band has all the attention it does; it's got those soaring melodies and impossibly fast guitar noodling and motorik drumming that feel as if they were specifically designed in a lab somewhere to make you dance. As it turns out, I could have just been describing many of the best tracks on the band's 2010 album, Tourist History. You can take that as you will, but it's safe to assume Progress in sound wasn't a priority as far as "Sleep Alone" was concerned.
