Para completar la serie de Ep´s editados por Two Door Cinema Club en este final de año, os presento este I can´t talk-Remixes EP, un sencillo que cuenta con seis diferentes versiones del mismo tema, que redunda en más de lo que ya os hablamos anteriormente sobre la banda: Energía, ansiedad juvenil, ritmos acelerados y teclados nuevaoleros. Como ya he leído en algún lado: ¿Sensación o timo? Bueno, no hay que ser tan tajantes, y sí disfrutar de su música aquellos a los que les satisface.

Tracklist:
01. I Can Talk (Radio Edit)
02. I Can Talk (French Horn Rebellion Remix)
03. I Can Talk (Crystal Fighters Remix)
04. I Can Talk (Moulinex Remix)
05. I Can Talk ( Golden Bug Remix)
06. Costume Party

Northern Ireland’s TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB is a music-mad trio whose debut album fizzes with invention and sparkling tunes. Rooted in rock and pop, with elements of electronica / electro, and Afro-beats, the sum is greater than any ‘indie electro pop’ parts.
Two Door Cinema Club’s story begins three years ago with three 15-year olds at school in a town just outside of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Vocalist/guitarist Alex Trimble and bassist Kevin Baird studied music together; guitarist Sam Halliday was a friend of Alex’s. The trio initially formed a rock band with a drummer, but after his departure, the remaining members realized“We were playing music that we weren’t enjoying,” says Kevin, “so we said ‘let’s write some songs, without any pretense of what they’ll sound like’. That’s why we find it so hard now if people ask us what genre we are.”
Experimenting included using a laptop to generate beats. “It was born of necessity at first because we didn’t know any other drummers,” saysAlex. “We weren’t sure it would work but we grew to love it.”
By this point, the boys’ tastes had gravitated toward alt/indie-rock, such as Bloc Party, Architecture In Helsinki, Death Cab For Cutie and Modest Mouse, whose collectively leaner, rhythmic and melodic approach spilled over into their own music. Gigs were quickly secured on the back of two songs posted to MySpace, followed by a deal with French label Kitsuné and immediate support from radio of their debut single, “Something Good Can Work.” Two Door Cinema Club inked a deal in North and South America with independent label Glassnote Records in November 2009, and will be releasing the album early next year” (

Two Door Cinema Club: Four words to stand on (Ep,2009), Glass Note

Ritmos acelerados, adrenalina juvenil, energía guitarrera sin demasiadas distorsiones, urgencias propias del debut de una joven banda… Cuando pensábamos que estos componentes más propios de los principios de la década estaban en franca decadencia, aparece esta joven banda irlandesa y nos da con todos ellos en las narices. Los seguidores de Bloc Party, Libertines, Arcade Fire o Architecture in Helsinki pueden dormir tranquilos, porque aquí van a encontrar dignos sucesores; si a todo ello le unimos esos sonidos de teclados tan casuales y resultones, tan New Vawe, pues tenemos como resultado este Ep de debut, adelanto de un próximo álbum que verá la luz a comienzos del año próximo. En New houses aparece reflejado con fidelidad todo lo que os he explicado, mezclando hábilmente todos esos elementos, con algún aire incluido de Death Cab for Cutie, particularmente en este tema con algunos pasajes algo más relajados. Los que conocéis la línea del blog sabéis que no comulgamos demasiado con este tipo de sonido, pero bien, le hemos prestado atención al disco ante la expectación que había despertado entre muchos de los blogs y revistas que solemos visitar. La opinión personal: floja; si he de deciros lo que ocurrirá con la banda, os diría que probablemente sea uno de los bombazos a nivel indie o de cultura de club y que se convertirá en uno de los hypes de la primera mitad del año que viene. Bueno, éso el tiempo lo dirá.
“Recorded in London at Eastcote Studios and produced by Elliott James (Bloc Party, Noah And The Whale) with a number of tracks mixed by Phillipe Zdar (Phoenix, Justice, Cassius), the album simply multiplies the single’s surfeit of ideas and sounds. The opening track, “Cigarettes In The Theatre,” perfectly displays the bands light-footed yet hard-driving energy, highlighted by Alex’s vocal melody, with its almost dreamy brand of urgency. It’s followed by “Come Back Home,” a sequel of sorts; introducing a bed of woozy synths that build and act as a launching pad for a digi-funk backdrop that bounces, swings and rocks behind Alex’s confessions of relationships-past. The album, he explains, has two general themes – ‘love’ songs (“but not in a typical sense; I’m adamant about avoiding clichés”) and songs that “chart our progression over these past 18 months. Where we’ve come from to where we are now with this album.”
Prior to recording their album, the young trio was faced with choosing between the security of university and a potential career, and the uncertainty and thrill of the band. “Undercover Martyn,” “What You Know,” “I Can Talk,” and “You’re Not Stubborn” address that issue, and are loosely linked by the theme of arguments and justifying what you believe in. “Something Good Can Work” is a song-title that explains and justifies the band’s success, while Alex says “Do You Want It All?” is“a song of hope, to keep us going, with the thought that if we try hard enough, we’re gonna do well”
