Two Door Cinema Club at Baroque Mayfair.

It's not every Tuesday evening that you're standing within a couple of meters of the band that stole the hearts of everyone at The Olympics but that's exactly where I found myself last night.

Imagine taking the best parts of Foals and Keane, amalgamating those together, then adding a touch of Vampire Weekend's broken down jazz - the result would be trio Two Door Cinema Club. 

Whether you're a fanatic fan or you've found yourself singing along to the Debenham's advert on TV, there's no denying how lovable TDCC are; they have a modest air of charming nervousness about them that you just can't ignore.

Airy vocals, catchy chords and infectious guitar tinkles filled Baroque last night; for a band better known for selling out huge arenas, Alex Trimble said the experience was "interesting but fun".

Gus Unger-Hamilton from Mercury prize winning band Alt-J even turned up to enjoy some of TDCC's more sophisticated hits last night from their sophomore album Beacon.

The trio took us back to 2010, finishing on What You Know, bringing smiles to faces and non-stop tapping of toes. 

If Two Door Cinema Club proved anything at Baroque last night, it was that they've finally shaken off their post-adolescent gawkiness, and all in good timing - they begin their official European tour tomorrow.
