Two Door Cinema Club
Northern Irish trio Two Door Cinema Club consists of lead vocalist and multi-instrumental talent Alex Trimble, plus schoolfriends Sam Halliday and Kevin Baird. Music industry experts tipped them for fame before even releasing an album – and once they did, 2010’s debut Tourist History was voted “Irish Album of the Year” and won them a breakthrough award from mtvU. In 2011, they have won new fans with great performances at the world’s most influential festivals, including Coachella, Glastonbury and Vieilles Charrues.
Named after a South African football team and born in the English city of Leeds, the four-piece Kaiser Chiefs enjoyed a rapid rise to fame, becoming one of the UK’s biggest live bands thanks to instant anthems like the classic “Ruby”. At the peak of their success in 2008, the band (Rick Wilson, Andrew White, Simon Rix, Nick Baines and Nick Hodson) announced a break from the spotlight to work on new material. The resulting album, The Future is Medieval, was released in summer 2011, and allows fans to choose their own tracklists and customize their cover artwork.
Cold War Kids
Californian quartet Cold War Kids got together in 2004, releasing their debut album, Robbers &Cowards, two years later (ou releasing their debut EP, Mulberry Street, the following year). The band is made up of Nathan Willett (lead vocals, piano, guitar), Matt Maust (bass), Johnnie Russell (piano, guitars, vocals) and Matt Aveiro (drums), and in the years since has produced several studio and live albums blending punk and soul influences with philosophical quotations and a genuine community ethos. Their latest powerful, riff-packed album is 2011’s Mine Is Yours.
