EXCLUSIVE: Behind The Scenes On Two Door Cinema Club's New Video

Esquire goes exclusively on set with the dance-punk trio.

Best known for giving dance-punk a hefty, boisterous dose of Northern Irish punch, Two Door Cinema Club have hit a stride: flirting with the mainstream, sans the sacrifice of indie cred. 

When it came time to craft their new video – for "Changing Of The Seasons" – they tapped brothers Brewer: the same lads behind Alt-J's mesmerising clip of "Something Good".

Styled with vintage clothing for the shoot, the moodboard heavily channelled Dont Look Back – the legendary observational documentary starring Bob Dylan. Within Pennebaker's film, Dylan notoriously gave the media a cold, silver-tongued shoulder.

Happily, when Esquire was invited onto the "Changing Of The Seasons" set, shoulders were entirely warm.

Touring the world hasn’t wearied them up an inch. Lucky that, since they've just booked their biggest UK show to date, this December at the O2 Arena.

Fresh off the plane from Latvia ("Lovely beaches," says guitarist Sam Halliday), the trio hyped up their new EP—which includes their collaboration with buzzy French disco producer, Madeon. 

"We met up with him in LA. We liked his music and we got chatting – he was into it," says bassist Kevin. "It was quite a natural collaboration."


The Changing Of The Seasons EP is out on 30 September on Parlophone – available to pre-order now.
