Two Door Cinema Club are an Electropop/Indie Rock band from Bangor and Donaghadee, Northern Ireland formed in 2007. They are signed to French record label Kitsun Music, through which they released their debut album Tourist History on 1 March 2010.
History: Trimble and Halliday first met whilst attending Bangor Grammar School. They met Baird when he was trying to get with girls they knew. The band's name came about after one of the members misprounced the name of local cinema Tudor Cinema, and this stuck. In 2007, Two Door Cinema Club was formed, and following an increased interest in their music on their MySpace page, they gave up their university places and began work on studio material.
An EP Four Words To Stand On was released in January 2009 and was positively received by critics. A number of music blogs featured articles about the band and their popularity increased. In July 2009, Two Door Cinema Club began recording their debut album at Eastcote Studios in London with Eliot James. In September, the band began mixing the record with Phillipe Zdar at Motorbass, his studio in Paris. In December 2009, Two Door Cinema Club were featured in the BBC's Sound Of 2010 Poll, which was decided by 165 British "tastemakers".
