Bands from Ireland can sure throw a party, can't they? Emerald Isle natives Two Door Cinema Club shares the power and the passion of like-minded groups along with the kind of ebullience that makes this electropop band's music contagious. The trio's sound is upbeat and balanced; mixing synths with an occasional tinge of in-your-face guitar-driven hooks. Lead-singer/guitarist Alex Trimble anchors the tunes with pleasant vocals that are soothing, but not too sweet. Bandmates Sam Halliday (guitar) and Kevin Baird (bass) keep things just right with melodious interplay that puts Two Door Cinema Club on a fast track.
Two Door Cinema Club performs on Saturday, October 12, 8:00 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N Water St., $26.50 - $29, waterstreetmusic.com.
