Two Door Cinema Club

With a concert coming up in Jan and a boyfriend obsessed with this band, I figure it's time to get my act together and figure out what the hype is about.

I'm having trouble finding a lot of info on these guys, but what I can see is that they are from Bangor, Ireland and started in the music industry fairly recently in 2009 as self proclaimed underdogs (And everyone, including me, has a soft spot for underdogs). They gained recognition via their myspace page for their "indie pop/electric sound", dropped out of school, and have one album, which is pretty rockin' I must say, called Tourist History that was released in the US March 2010. Also, a little funny bit of information - the reason they are called Two Door Cinema Club is because one of the band members mispronouned Bangor's, Tudor Cinema.

Here is the Tourist History breakdown...I'd have to say my favorite is "Do You Want It All". And yes, I do.

2. "Come Back Home" 3:24
3. "Do You Want It All?" 3:30
4. "This Is the Life" 3:31
5. "Something Good Can Work" 2:45
6. "I Can Talk" 2:58
7. "Undercover Martyn" 2:48
8. "What You Know" 3:12
9. "Eat That Up, It's Good for You" 3:45
10. "You're Not Stubborn"

I also found this great remix of Two Door Cinema Club & The Twelves doing Something Good Can Work.

And this one is for you, bf, their cover of Lady Gaga's, Poker Face.

Also - trick question - What do the lead singer of Two Door Cinema Club, Justin Beiber, and I have in common? We all have the same haircut.
