Two Door Cinema Club – Beacon

I have been highly anticipating Two Door Cinema Club’s new album, Beacon. The official release date isn’t until September 4th, but the band has kindly offered Beacon to be streamed in its entirety a week and a half early. I just finished listening through it, and I’m pretty impressed. So far, The World is Watching is my favorite track, but I’m sure that the more I listen, new favorites will be made. No surprise really, but Beacon is packed full of catchy, indie pop jams. I couldn’t ask for anything more from Two Door Cinema Club’s sophomore effort. It’s a strong follow up to Tourist History.

Video: Two Door Cinema Club – Sleep Alone

Two Door Cinema Club dropped this extremely fun video for their latest single, Sleep Alone, today. I’m going to go ahead and describe the visuals as a mix of the classic movies, Poltergeist and Bedknobs and Broomsticks. All sorts of inanimate objects take life and end up chasing the band out of the room that they’re, presumably, innocently staying in. This leads to one wild ride on a bed, which involves being chased by a giant guitar and a train. You know, the sort of stuff that would happen in your average ’80s movie, except Sleep Alone isn’t as zany as say Zapped!, Better Off Dead, or Weird Science. In the end, everything turns out to be just one big, crazy dream.

Two Door Cinema Club – Sleep Alone

I can’t possibly pass up on posting Two Door Cinema Club’s new single, Sleep Alone. My first introduction to TDCC was back when Kanye was still actively blogging and he posted the video for I Can’t Talk. That song was/is downright catchy, and I instantly began searching out more of the band’s demos after watching that music video. Shortly thereafter, TDCC released one of the best indie pop albums to date, Tourist History. Now, the band is gearing up for the release of their new album, Beacon, and have just released Sleep Alone as a free download for the next 24 hours. Stream Sleep Alone and memorize the lyrics on the YouTube player, then head on over to Two Door Cinema Club’s website to grab the single for free (for the next 23 hours).
