In the spotlight, you get to sit tight

The first - pleasingly loud and crunchy - song to appear in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring soundtrack, Crown On The Ground captures the euphoric release experienced by the film's protagonists as they tap into the shallow materialism of Hollywood A-listers by burgling their mansions for designer labels. Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells released the track on their 2010 debut album Treats, and unsurprisingly it's also been featured in a Dr Pepper commercial in America. See below for two further songs from the soundtrack.
