Two Door Cinema Club is here and ready to dance. Their newest single, “Dirty Air,” is the latest release from forthcoming album False Alarm. The track is a disco-inspired extravaganza, leading their fans straight into a new era for the alt-rockers.
Following the intensely club-sounding “Talk” and computer rock “Satellite,” “Dirty Air” is a refreshing dance tune. Two Door Cinema Club has always stuck with upbeat, alternative records, but now, the group seems to be pushing towards an electro-pop direction. We aren’t complaining.
“Dirty Air” is jam-packed with high energy guitar grooves—not to mention the radical 80s-inspired synth loops that open the track. The band seems to have found an exciting new flow with “Dirty Air.”
“I gave myself to the city, I wanna breathe dirty air // I got myself real pretty, I fixed up my hair,” Alex Trimble sings in the opening. The song then continues to explore the vibrant story of city nightlife.
“Everyone’s watching like nobody cares // The queen of fashion, ahead of her time // Whatever happens, the pleasure is mine,” he continues in the chorus. A carefree, dance energy radiates through these lyrics. They’re almost reminiscent of the bombastic Bowie.
The young Irish rockers seem to be taking a cue to push themselves into this more cross-genre electro-pop movement reminiscent of the 80s and the electronic glam that moved it. Two Door Cinema Club is here to push modern alt forward and into a fun, disco direction.
