The set consists of some oldies along with some tracks from their latest studio offering, Angles. I'm not jealous of the competition winners one bit, honest.

Young guns, Two Door Cinema Club, stepped up for a big set at R1BW on the In New Music We Trust stage mid Sunday afternoon and courtesy of the official R1 Youtube channel.
