Two Door Cinema Club

Something Good Can Work

This 2008 single proved a winner when belted out from Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage. Contenders for performance of the weekend.

Wild Flag


Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss work together again on this spiky, organ-driven track.

Two Wounded Birds

My Lonesome

This Tarantino-esque surf-pop number was a highlight of TWB's triumphant BBC Introducing stage set at Glasto.

Vivian Girls

Take It As It Comes

The golden combination of 60s girl-group-style spoken-word vocals and a love-sick garage-rock backing.


Come Rain, Come Sunshine

Heartstring-tugging electronica. Shimmering keys and a gentle, melancholic vocal transform into a bright dance track halfway through.



Don't let their symbol-based name (inspired by the Mac key) distract you from the band's lilting, pastoral music.

Murphy Jax

Time to Bump

There's a vintage feel to this song's synths and melodramatic strings. Eighties acid house a clear influence.



Angular and awkward yet irrepressibly catchy. Pop and indie meet perfectly.

J Dilla

Last Donut of the Night

Hard-hitting hip-hop that combines 90s beats with 70s soul strings and samples.
