The show’s star Cillian Murphy recently spoke to NME about his favourite songs. He said of Christine And The Queens’ ‘Tilted’: “I really like that and it’s very danceable. It’s just got a great groove and she’s an amazing performer. I love great dancing and she’s a really great dancer. I defy anyone not to want to dance when they listen to that track.”
