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.
