Mixing guitar-driven, post-punk hooks with dancey, electronic polish, Northern Ireland's Two Door Cinema Club first gained attention with 2010's Tourist History and singles like "Something Good Can Work" and "Undercover Martyn."
The record hit number one on the Irish independent albums chart, and landed on the BBC Sound of 2010 Poll. Along the way, the band earned favorable comparisons to Phoenix and the Postal Service. They continued to evolve, landing in the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 with 2012's Beacon, and experimenting with Giorgio Moroder-esque disco and synth pop on 2016's Gameshow. That album also hit the U.K. Top Ten and paved the way for 2019's new wave-inspired False Alarm and 2022's Keep On Smiling
