Melodic indie pop-rockers Two Door Cinema Club
is back with a track from their new upcoming sophomore album Beacon
. The track, "Handshake," features a single verse repeated over a very intricate melody. The best news this track brings us (besides the fact it's super catchy) is the promise it shows for the trio's upcoming album. It's clear they have some higher production values this time around, but that's about the only noticeable difference. The melodies still walk that fine line between twinkling chimes and heavy guitars -- it's Cinema Club's style -- and their simple lyrics still resonate, capturing something slightly more poetic than the words at face value. "You never find love in an open hand," has immediately become one of my new favorite lines.
"Handshake" is a great song that will whet your appetite just long enough for the September release of sure-to-be great album Beacon.
