Two Door Cinema Club - Something Good Can Work

Two Door Cinema Club is an indie rock band from Northern Ireland.  Their music is bouncy and catchy.  Imagine fusing together Vampire Weekend and Phoenix.  The end result would be Two Door Cinema Club.  By taking elements that these established bands have used, this young band could be on the cusp of success.

"Something Good Can Work" has the same sound as "Lisztomania" had for Phoenix.  It's very poppy and fast.  The lyrically packed verses have a great contrast from the chorus.  The tune also contains a clapping beat, which adds even more to the happy vibe.  "Something Good Can Work" has the same star power as the previous "iPod ad" hits.  It's has some sort of commercial appeal, yet it's "indie" enough to attract an entirely different crowd.

Hopefully this song won't be criticized for being a sound-alike to bands such as Hockey and Vampire Weekend.  While it does sound similar, it isn't to the point of confusion.  You can find "Something Good Can Work" on their debut album, Tourist History.  You can also download it for free on iTunes until April 20, US listeners only.  I would definitely check out this band, they're catchy and fun.  What more could you ask for?
