Invincible | Two Door Cinema Club


Sana Hakim

Last month, Two Door Cinema Club stopped by Detroit on their tour featuring recently released album Gameshow. This album brims with 80’s nostalgia particularly with the song “Invincible.” A coinciding ode to a lost love and decade, “Invincible” steers in the direction of a classic 80’s ballad, with howling electric guitar and confessional lyrics sung in the second person.

While Two Door Cinema Club never shies away from borrowing elements of foregone icons to flavor its music, this song sounds like the anthem of an 80’s revival band. It may be a risky move to change lanes when the band already had established a sound that the industry expects and enjoys — but it wasn’t a bad one.
