Two Door Cinema Club‘s third album ‘Gameshow’ will be out on in mid-October. Judging from what’s already been revealed from the new album, it could be a very polarising album for longtime fans. ‘Bad Decisions’ is the latest song (and video) to be unveiled, and it’s already getting loads of comments. The song itself looks like it was plucked out of the ’70s and ’80s, as Alex Trimble’s falsetto voice warbles like the Bee Gees and

I’d agree with some of them that the promo looks like it was conceived when they were on acid. However, the weirdness of this video could simply reflect the many challenges the band have faced since they had to cancel their headline appearance at Latitude 2014. I think it’s safe to say that all of us fans really had no idea the trials Alex, Sam and Kevin were going through. (You can read DIY’s cover story with the band here. Warning: it’s a lot to take in.) Yet there is also a sense of whimsy right from the start of this video, as if they’re laughing at themselves.

Watch the video for ‘Bad Decisions’ below. Two Door Cinema Club’s new album ‘Gameshow’ will drop on the 14th of October on Parlophone Records.
