They may be young and look similar to the cast of The Inbetweeners, but Northern Ireland’s electro-pop indie band Two Door Cinema Club entertained a sold-out Wedgewood Rooms with style and not just from the set’s habitual strobe.

Coming on stage shortly after a live interview for Radio One’s Glastonbury coverage (they go to the Somerset festival today), they opened with Cigarettes In The Theatre. And it’s not long before the audience adopt a spot of crowd surfing.

With the debut album Tourist History being the main source of material, I was curious to see what else we would be offered. Lead vocalist Alex Trimble humbly provided some new sounds which were received well and carried that stereotypical TDCC sound.

The night held a fun atmosphere and provided a fantastic warm-up venue.

Fans of Vampire Weekend and Bombay Bicycle Club would do well to catch these guys.

We jutted merrily through each song and obvious favourites Undercover Martyn and What you Know and rhythmic encore I can Talk. A quick set but happiness infused night.
