Formed in 2007, Northern Ireland's Two Door Cinema Club started out as a humble project between Sam Halliday, Alex Trimble and Kevin Baird. Four years later, the trio has honed its Brit-pop take on The Postal Service to acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.

The boys released Tourist History in 2010 and watched first go gold and then win the Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year, a huge accomplishment for such a young band.

Since the album's release, the band has performed across the globe with acts like Tokyo Police Club, Foals and Phoenix.
