One of the most buzz worthy bands as of late are the Irish trio Two Door Cinema Club. They are back in the news, and back in a big way. They have a new song, a remix of Lady Gaga’s “Electric  Chapel”, and actually got to work with the infamous star on it. Leaf vocalist Alex told The Sun newspaper: “She said we only had a week. That’s not a lot of time, especially as we were on tour but I couldn’t turn down such an incredible opportunity. So we worked every single day and night and threw it together. I’m really proud of it.” The band came to Gaga’s attention after they recorded a live version of her song ‘Poker Face’ in 2010.
They have since been working on the follow up to their debut Tourist History, and say that it will be a move away from the sound of the first record. Alex has said: “All of us have been listening to quite a lot of hip-hop, the last year or so Sam’s been really into Kanye West and Jay-Z and Drake. “He’s been playing it around the house so it gets in your head, and that has come out in the music.” They are gearing up to headline the sold out NME Tour in the UK, playing alongside artists such as Metronomy, Tribes, and Azealia Banks.
And according to the site The Audio Perv: “We’re very excited to be able to tell you that pretty much as soon as we finish up recording the new album we’ll be back on the road! We’re very excited to be heading back to the States to play a few shows in May and June. Expect to hear some pretty massive new songs we’re in the process of adding the finishing touches too as we speak.”
Alex Trimble also told a NME reporter that they had worked with a “big name” to produce it, but quit short of revealing who it was. The rumors on the interwebs was that it would be U2/REM producer Jacknife Lee. Trimble said: “I can’t tell you, it’s still under wraps. It’s a big name, though. He’s quite a big producer, but his studio is just next to his house, there’s no huge mixing desk, so it’s really relaxed and a great place to be. We’ve been in the studio for a couple of weeks now. We’ve got four tracks done, and we’re heading back after the NME Tour for another two months and we’ll get as much done as we can.”
