Contagious choruses are hardly anything new to the music industry; they're almost the heart of it. Three-piece band Two Door Cinema Club makes climbing the charts look crazy easy even without straight pop hooks. Its genre-bending fusion of pop, indie rock, and dance makes it stand out from the rest of the radio stuff. For five years, frontman Alex Trimble has led the band at music festivals across the pond as massive as T in the Park and those in Reading and Leeds.
