Two Door Cinema Club are an indie (yay) rock band formed in 2007, in Northern Ireland. The band members are Sam Halliday, Alex Trimble and Kevin Baird. They released their debut album, Tourist History on March 2010 and are signed to Kitsune Music. “Kids” and “What You Know” are my favorite. Their song “Kids” are actually stuck in my head right now.
