Song of the Week

Bands in this era have crazy names .... maybe all the good ones have already been taking. This is definitely the case with "Two Door Cinema Club," an indie band from Northern Ireland. The band has been semi-popular in the indie community, having even toured with indie heroes Phoenix. The band is poised to gain more popularity as their songs have the right mix of "catchy," and "simplistic-yet-complex."

Their song "What You Know," has almost a tango-like undertone mixed with an alt-poppy sound. It almost sounds like Duran-Duran mixed with Phoenix ... I can hear Rio in this if I listen closely enough. A very cool sounding guitar laces the entire track, along with some synth-elements ... just a great mixture ... this is a song I could listen to over and over again.
