CHEM BROS' CYCLING-INSPIRED OLYMPIC ANTHEM

The official Olympic anthems have been revealed, with The Chemicals Brothers, Delphic and Pnau set to represent the dance nation. 

The tracks will provide the soundtrack to various events at the Games, with The Chem Bros' 'Theme For Velodrome' ringing out during track cycling. Tom Rowlands, one half of the duo (left), loves spinning his wheels as much as he loves spinning tunes: "I have loved cycling since I was a boy. I have always made a connection between electronic music and cycling". Check out the video below.

Delphic have also stepped up to the mark, writing uplifting track 'Good Life' (out July 23) and reworking 'Chariots of Fire', which will be played at the medal ceremonies. 'Clarion Call', from the band's debut album 'Acolyte', is being used by Channel 4 as the theme for their coverage of the Paralympics. 

Coming in third, Elton John is said to be "in awe" of the Balearic vibes Pnau have injected into new track 'Good Morning to the Sun', which features elements of a number of his 70s hits and is out now. 

'Theme For Velodrome' is out July 30. Listen below.
