58: Two Door Cinema Club on Northern Ireland and The Troubles

Fri Jun 22 2018 (53:15)

Kevin Baird is a founding member of Two Door Cinema Club, probably the most successful rock band to ever come out of Northern Ireland. The three members of Two Door met as teenagers in Bangor and made their TV debut at the age of sixteen on a BBC TV music talent show - where they came last. 

In 2007 they conquered social media and chose music over University, releasing their debut EP Four Words to Stand On, the following year. Two Door have had massive success across the world with three massive-selling albums including their platinum-debut Tourist History.

Kevin's talking to us today about his fascination with a difficult period for his country.
