For those of you who have been with me since the beginning of AMBY, you’ll know that one of my first-ever full band interviews was with Two Door Cinema Club over three years ago. I instantly fell in love with their kinetic energy and distinctive guitar sound, and have been a fan for years. They’re not only inspired me, but also many friends to start bands or learn to play guitar — you can learn about good guitar for beginners here. So much has changed since that interview, so it really felt like I was coming full circle when joined by the band’s Alex Trimble, Kevin Baird, and Sam Halliday once again. I had the pleasure of catching up with this lovely trio during their latest visit through Toronto when supporting their new record Gameshow. Indulge in our conversation as we discuss social media addicts, having fun with setlists, and what they’re a sucker for.
