Holy moley. When I first got a taste of Two Door Cinema Club I knew they had the skills for a jam or two but I would have never guessed that these rosy-cheeked Irish kids would be dropping one of theÂ catchiestÂ and most instantly infectious albums of the year so far. Tourist History is a tight ten tracks and wastes no time on ballads or slow jams. Every track is brimming with dazzling guitar work,Â beautifulÂ harmonies, and a rhythm section that has a the key to dance-headquarters. I’m serious about those guitars though, what makes these guys so great is that they aren’t afraid to shred a tight guitar riff now and then, giving the music an edge that is missing in a lot ofÂ over-polishedÂ indie/dance/pop. In “Undercover Martyn” I’ve even found myself singing along to that epic ‘wah-wah’ guitar business more than the lyrics. And thoseÂ brilliantÂ lazer sounds around the 2:00 mark are perfect for a Spaceman Spiff-inspired dance number. Seriously people, if you find any joy in this jam (or the first 2 I posted) then get this album. And getÂ particularlyÂ excited for “Eat That Up, It’s Good For You.” I do.
