Two Door Cinema Club up the euphoria levels at Reading 2016

The trio made a triumphant return to the NME / BBC Radio 1 stage last night.

Over the past six weeks, Two Door Cinema Club have - quite literally - been to other side of the world and back. Yet somehow, despite having been in Japan less than a week ago, there’s no hint of tiredness in the trio tonight.

Making one of their first UK festival appearances since 2013, the three-piece look incredibly happy to be back on the stage together and unsurprisingly, it’s mirrored in the crowd. After a fairly tumultuous time apart over the past two years, there’s a brilliant energy to the trio; a real sense of euphoria fills the tent for the duration of their set.

While the likes of ‘Do You Want It All?’ and ‘Something Good Can Work’ whip up enormous singalongs, the new songs that are scattered amongst the set sound right at home too - and for anyone doubting Alex Trimble’s high notes on the funk-laden ‘Bad Decisions’, he hits the mark perfectly. But their set’s not so much about debuting new material so much as celebrating the old, and their Reading set is very much the perfect place to do it.
