Northern Ireland's Two Door Cinema Club are yet another act in our chart to have appeared in the BBC's Sound of 2010 poll. The youthful electropop outfit released their debut Tourist History on Parisian label Kitsuné in March, before letting the album loose on the U.S. at the end of April.
A handful of irresistibly catchy singles got under your skin throughout the summer, with the urgent funkiness of 'Undercover Martyn' collecting over 1.2 million scrobbles to date, followed closely by the gentler rhythms of 'Something Good Can Work'. Those tracks and others cropped up on countless TV shows and ads throughout the year, ensuring that the trio's infectious pop was hard to miss.
A bunch of remixes by more underground artists - Passion Pit, Crystal Fighters and Is Tropical to name just a few - proved Two Door Cinema Club's popularity among a broad fanbase, and the positive response from critics even saw British magazine the NME proclaim that 'being happy is the new being sad'!
With tour dates lined up until the end of February, let's hope they've packed enough Smarties to keep them fizzing with energy through the winter.
