Northern Ireland's Two Door Cinema Club have recorded a sensational cover of John Lennon's classic 'Isolation'.

As the UK went into enforced lockdown, the band's frontman Alex Trimble was able to record his own version at his makeshift home studio.

Originally released on Lennon's debut solo album, 1970's 'John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band', Trimble's interpretation features soaring psych married to a muddled, woozy indie rock vibe with a sonic reverb sounding modern, yet analogue at once.


All the proceeds from the song will go to Extern, Ireland's leading social justice charity that each year enables over 20,000 people to change their lives.

Speaking of the band's connection to the charity, bassist Kevin Baird says: "In October 2019, I had the pleasure of visiting the Extern offices in Belfast, just a few hours before our show at The Telegraph Building.

"I've been in awe of their tremendous work ever since, in particular the life saving administering of naloxone to those in the grips of an opioid overdose.

"Extern work so hard to protect and provide for anyone who need it in Ireland, north and south. They literally save lives and so much more."
