Barack Obama’s fave band Two Door Cinema Club performed an acoustic version of “Sleep Alone” for ANDPOP and talked about all the mundane things that excite them in North America.
It’s no surprise they spend more time over here than anywhere else in the world, considering how crazy we are about them. Even the Pres is a huge fan of the Northern Irish trio. There were rumours a couple months ago that Obama booked every seat for one of their gigs in Washington DC and although it wasn’t true, we’d believe it!
“We actually spend more time in America than anywhere else in the world,” said bass player Kevin Baird.
Indie rock trio Two Door Cinema Club’s newest album Beacon is the perfect upbeat playlist to put on when you’re chilling with friends next weekend. Though the album doesn’t officially come out until Sept. 4, you can stream it online, below. This is the second EP from the guys, who hail from Northern Ireland. It includes the lead single “Sleep Alone.”
Fun, albeit unconfirmed tidbit: Barack Obama is apparently a huge fan. While the guys denied rumors to BBC that he bought an entire stadium worth of seats for a show in Washington DC, we certainly wouldn’t blame him if he did!
