    The eclectic Irish band Two Door Cinema Club released their debut album Tourist History earlier this month in the U.K., and fortunately for our American ears, a 4/27 release date has been announced for the U.S. Citing Passion Pit, Phoenix, and Manchester Orchestra as their influences, in tracks like "Undercover Martyn" heavy with hooks, you can see (hear?) it. In fact, Passion Pit themselves remixed that very track earlier this year, and they will be on tour with Phoenix in late April. Today, however, we give you the mp3 of their third single, "Something Good Can Work".

    Aiming for "a fast paced, electro pop" sound, Two Door Cinema has certainly succeeded on this track. The opening is akin to that of Lady GaGa's "Telephone" (I was told I was allowed to put in all the GaGa references I wanted, one down for the count). But afterwards, it's about as far from the GaGa sound as one could get. With Alex Trimble's fast-talking, almost-unintelligible vocals and a guitar line that is, in so many words, catchy, this track is what I like to call "awesome". The sound really makes me want to go surfing, and I vowed never to try that again after the Hawaiian Surfing Lesson Disaster of '05. Check the track out, as well as tour dates, below.

    Tourist History is out now in the U.K. and 4/27 in the U.S. on Glassnote Records. - hanna kasper
