TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB reveal new track 'Once' - Listen Now

Two Door Cinema Club today unveil new song ‘Once’. A stomping synthpop anthem ‘Once’ explores the way we define ourselves by likes and our online ‘fame’, living vicariously through devices. Reviewing ‘False Alarm’ Sunday Times Culture stated that Two Door could ‘….be mistaken for Phoenix on ‘Once’, where bright synths and alien sounds abound’.

Discussing the track, Two Door’s Alex Trimble states “The phrase ‘once in a lifetime’ came out in conversation and I started questioning what does that mean anymore? When everything is captured on a camera or viewed through a screen, and if you can watch it a million times over, is it once in a lifetime?… There’s also this idea that you are a product, everyone’s building their brand.”

‘Once’ is taken from Two Door’s forthcoming album ‘False Alarm’ which is out on 21st June on Prolifica Inc / [PIAS]. This week also sees the band appear in Nottingham, Leeds, Edinburgh and Dundee, playing rare up-close-and-personal album launch shows at Rescue Rooms, Liquid Rooms, Brudenell Social Club and Fat Sams. The album launch shows will give fans the chance to see the festival headliners in uniquely intimate surroundings ahead of their own UK arena tour in October playing O2 Arena on 11th October.

Listen to ‘Once’ – BELOW: 

The band’s first album to be released in full collaboration with Prolifica Inc, ‘False Alarm’ finds the three piece gloriously unshackled and creatively at the peak of their game. Across ten tracks ‘False Alarm’ scans and satirises the social and environmental woes of 2019 through the prism of wonderfully off-kilter pop, simultaneously borrowing from and warping elements of future pop, disco, rock, funk and soul. Recorded in sessions between London and LA with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, The Killers), it’s an LP that takes the familiar and twists it, to startling and stimulating effect. It all makes for a wide-eyed, culture-encompassing leap forward for the band, a record liable to break, ruin and remould pop in 2019.
