Brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll came to prominence back in the late 1980s, the electronic dance music duo scoring an unexpected hit with rave anthem Chime.

But it was their 1994 appearance at Glastonbury that really propelled Orbital into orbit. Plenty of high-profile work followed, including contributions to soundtracks for movies such as The Saint and Event Horizon.

The brothers split in 2004 after seven albums, once again pooled their considerable resources in 2009, then went separate ways again in 2014. Three years later they got back together and have since released two albums: Monsters Exist and last year’s Optical Delusion.
