Two Door Cinema Club have announced details of their fourth studio album False Alarm, along with unveiling new single ‘Satellite’.
Taken from their new record, out June 14 via Prolifica Inc/[PIAS], ‘Satellite’ is an infectious Krautpop-influenced slice of future pop that accepts as a species we’re “in it together” – be it Brexit, climate change or any other man-made modern day terror.
Details of the release were unveiled in a typically irreverent live stream which saw the trio launching the new album cover into space, whilst simultaneously commentating on the event and answering questions from fans.
Listen to ‘Satellite’ by Two Door Cinema Club on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
The band’s first album to be released in full collaboration with Prolifica Inc, False Alarm finds the three-piece gloriously unshackled and creatively at the peak of their game.
Across its ten tracks False Alarm wryly scans and satirises the social and environmental woes of 2019 through the prism of wonderfully off-kilter pop, simultaneously borrowing from and warping elements of future pop, disco, rock, funk and soul.
“I love the pop thing,” frontman Alex Trimble explains. “I love experimenting and going to different places, I love doing things that are a little bit wonky and I love the idea of doing something we haven’t done before, why can’t we do all of those things at once?
“That’s what it was, doing whatever felt right… It sounds like Two Door Cinema Club – not a Two Door Cinema Club there’d ever been before but that’s what I love. We can always do something new but it always feels like something we’ve done.”
