What's The Song At The End Of Hawkeye Episode 2?

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are already halfway through the first season of "Hawkeye" (via IMDb). The series, which first premiered on November 24, has received rave reviews from plenty of fans and critics alike (via Rotten Tomatoes). In addition to praising the portrayals of Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), many fans are loving the introduction of Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox). Maya is the second deaf superhero in the MCU, following the debut of Lauren Ridloff as Makkari in "Eternals" (via New York Times). 

In the comics, Maya goes by the alias of "Echo" and possesses photographic reflexes which allow her to perfectly replicate any action she sees, including incredibly difficult-to-master skills. As was briefly glimpsed in a flashback in the third episode of the series, Maya can learn new fighting techniques in a matter of seconds.

Maya first appears in "Hawkeye" at the end of episode two (via IMDb). Here, we see Maya in a room filled with big speakers, all of which are blasting a particularly distinctive song. Though she is deaf, it appears that Maya is listening to the song by feeling the vibrations on the speakers. So, what is that song?

Christmas Island by Depeche Mode

Like virtually everything else in the series, the song at the end of the second episode of "Hawkeye" is filled with the spirit of the holidays. Released as a B-side to "A Question Of Lust" in 1986, this Depeche Mode song is titled "Christmas Island" (via Discogs). Far from the group's most popular song, "Christmas Island" is a definite deep cut into the extensive discography of the English electronic music band. Some of the better-known songs by the group include "Enjoy the Silence," "Personal Jesus," "People are People," and "Policy of Truth" (via Billboard).

First formed in 1976, Depeche Mode was one of the first bands to make such prominent use of synthesizers that it became their signature trademark (via All Music). The group has enjoyed international success for many decades and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2020 (via RockHall.com).
