Two Door Cinema Club are a trio from Northern Ireland, formed in 2007. Though initially started as a hobby, the interest and expectations in them raised as a result of their tracks on MySpace and they therefore decided to take the band more seriously. They began recording new material, and in January 2009, Kitsuné released their debut EP, “Four Words To Stand On”. The album is a good showcase of their credentials: frantic indie-pop, fun and catchy. The EP was a hit in the blogosphere, and it instantly made the band one of the great hopes of the moment. That summer they began working on their debut album in a studio in London, with producer Eliot James (Noah And The Whale, Kaiser Chiefs, Mark Ronson). They finished the job at Phillipe Zdar's Motorbass studio. “Tourist History” came out in February 2010 and was a commercial success. It won the Choice Music Prize, the Northern Irish equivalent of the Mercury Prize.
