Biography

It's not for anyone else to decide what other young men and women should get up to in the sanctity of their own bedrooms. That said, it's heartening to know that not everyone using the term "bedroom band" is a lazy person making bad excuses for a tossed off record.

For four, long years, Django Django have been busy doing great things in the East London bedroom slept in ... Read more in Amazon's Django Django Store

Product Description

Product Description

Django Django who met at art school in Edinburgh, first came to peoples' attentions after a gradual migration to London a couple of years back. 2009’s double A-side single "Storm"/"Love's Dart" laid the blueprint for a confident, adventurous and psychedelically-bruised strain of art-rock that melds intangible electronic flourishes to the visceral rub of live instrumentation. The time since has been spent holed away, expanding upon that blueprint, seeing where they can push it. This eponymous first album is the result and a sign of things to come.

BBC Review

Begone, indie-is-dead doom-mongers! As east London-based, Edinburgh-formed four-piece Django Django prove on this thrilling debut long-play platter, there’s life in the old dogged-by-disdain genre yet. Smart but not showy, clever but never at the expense of a catchy hook, this is ‘indie’ par excellence: guitars that ring through the mix like a clarion call from the inspired to take up arms against the dunderheaded legions of lad-rockers; buzzing synths that swirl around like a cloud of friendly wasps; lyrics delivered in mantras, summoning forth similar sermons to those once purveyed by the mighty Beta Band.

Django Django (part of a proud tradition of repeated-word tunesmiths, following the lineage of Talk Talk and Duran Duran; they’re actually named in honour of one of Django Reinhardt’s tutors who, so the story goes, had a stammer) call Because their label home and, much like another of the stable’s finer signings, Metronomy, their combination of dance moves, deep grooves and itchy guitars is, once the taste is taken to, wholly irresistible. It’s an unusual but potent potion they proffer, at turns funky and scratchy, propulsive with its percussion and, moments later, content to drift on waves of enveloping oscillation.

At its best, this album tweaks like the very best avant-pop should: with singular style and mass audience-embracing accessibility. So, the cowbell-clanging, bassline-throbbing Zumm Zumm – "Got to get to know / Got to get to know" times infinity – is a first-play pick; so too is the 6 Music playlisted Default, which at its outset sounds like The White Stripes taken hold of by Franz Ferdinand – naturally, it soon eclipses such convenient parallels by morphing into a low-end-wobbling creation entirely of its own design. That the band’s ‘leader’, David Maclean, is their drummer provides many pre-play clues as to the sound presented here: it’s rhythm leading melody, cadence over leap-out choruses, albeit in an altogether more ear canal-caressing form than the racket mustered by the similarly percussively powerful HEALTH – Black Sabbath to Django’s Black Lace. (If the latter were awesomeness squared, and not awful Eurovision also-rans, obviously.) Point is: this is pure pop to listeners of a certain persuasion.

But just as The Beta Band fizzled out without making a significant mainstream name for themselves, and the sublime Super Furry Animals have never captured as many hearts as their rather-less-inspired countrymen Stereophonics, Django Django could be forever confined to the pop sidelines. Which would be tremendously disappointing for anyone bemoaning indie’s vapid uniformity: for here, sirs and madams, is a proposition to confound your expectations of what such a band should be and excite your senses to fresh possibilities.

Clever pop albums rarely gain mainstream approval these days. In fact many bands struggle to get anywhere ploughing this furrow. Django Django are the latest band to try and get somewhere through this path and this really is a worthy effort which deserves airplay and plaudits.

Default is one of the most catchy and wonderful tunes you are likely to hear this year. Cut up vocals, electronic noises, drumming at the centre of the piece and melody. It really is a wow moment the first time you listen to it. It is so good you wonder if everything else would stand up. However, tracks like Waveforms, WOR and Zumm Zumm deliver as well. WOR has a Duane Eddy style guitar riff the somehow emerges from the sounds of a siren. Zumm Zumm starts with an almost demented alien sounding riff and then emerges into a catchy number. A lot of these tracks sound like Beta Band and if you liked them then you'll like this. Its a bit more dance inspired and upbeat than some of their numbers but if you want a guide then they are the closest I have heard.

The joy of this is that every track develops as it goes along and delivers percussion led pop with good harmonies. Its inventive, catchy and above all else fun. Its an early contender for album of the year and is a worthwhile investment.

This is a great debut Lp, which comes across as a more commercial, funked-up Beta Band high on indie grooves. It's quite an achievement for any band to release a 12 track album with no filler or lulls, but these boys have done it.

The vocal arrangements are done to perfection, and the whole thing a wondrous journey of psychedelic inventiveness. Recommended.

This is an absolutely marvelous LP of Beta Band/Beach Boys/Beatles/Blancmange pop music. Skip 'Zumm Zumm' and it is perfect! There is nothing contrived about this, a fact supported by seeing the band live. Enjoy!

I'll keep my review of Django Django short and sweet and just urge you to buy this album. If the Beach Boys had made and acid-house long-player, then This Is It. Soaring harmonies, hypnotic guitar and synth lines, driving bass. Solid. A great start to 2012.

This is their debut album, bursting with sophisticated tunes that get your foot tapping and grab your attention with little interesting quirks thrown in here and there. The Introduction track starts off slightly brooding but melodic. 2nd track Hail Bop is more upbeat and playful, presumably a tribute to the comet with the line " I've been waiting for you so long and now you've taken off again" having a humourous touch. Default is infectious pop, so 3 great tracks to start the album off. Waveforms has catchy percussion,(which is innovative and varied throughout the album), synthesisers build up, then great vocal harmonies come in with a clear nod to the Beach Boys. The songs initially sound simple, but listen carefully and there are lots of subtle nuances that you pick up, and it is clever, varied and lovely stuff that grows on you with repeated listens. There are interesting samples and odd quirky sounds inserted here and there, but they embelish rather than distract from the overall sound and feel. Track 6, Zumm Zumm, repeats "Got to get to know you" in various ways to good effect and is uptempo and a strong song. Hands of Man is a sparser track with less electronics, more guitar and vocal harmonies, a quieter moment that cools down the tempo nicely. On Love's Dart the pecussion is fantastic, sometimes sounding like horses hooves clopping, intriguing, quirky and fascinating. War has the sound of sirens at the start, then twangy guitar comes in and the track cumulatively builds up. Storm is upbeat which you would expect with that title, while Skies Over Cairo is an instrumental with an Egyptian flavoured motif, a fun track. I have had this album a few weeks now, it has garnered favourable critical reviews from a wide variety of sources, and is destined to be in many peoples end of year favourites, fresh, different, entertaining, a stunning debut. It will definitely be one of my top albums from 2012.

Bands made up of former art college students can often go one of two ways. Get it wrong and the music (and especially lyrics) can end up sounding pompous and pretentious. Get it right and the inventiveness and creativity can make for a very pleasing listen. Happily, Django Django fall very much into the latter category. Lyrics are smart and witty, but also likeable - there's no hint of smugness or self-satisfaction here. Musically, they pitch the focus between melody and rhythm just right. Their songs are tuneful and accessible - you may find yourself humming along before you know it - but are also backed up by a tight, funky rhythm section that allows the band to explore its quirky side without the danger of spiralling out of control.

While I can understand the Beta Band comparisons, I also spot influences that date a little further back - Talking Heads, Godley and Creme era 10cc, and underrated 80s duo Blancmange all spring to mind. This is one of those albums where it's difficult to pick a favourite track, so I won't try. Give the audio clips a listen. They explain it better than I can.

I don't tend to write reviews very often, but this album was definitely worth writing about!

I always worry with debuts that the one famous song will be the only good track on the album but fortunately this album delivers on every track. Very dance-y in places, quiet in others, it's a very accomplished debut. I'd say if you liked the Animal Collective or Caribou you'd like this too.

My fave tracks are the livelier ones - Default, Storm and Life's A Beach - but I also particularly like the harmonies and melody of Hand of Man which is much more pared back and in contrast to the electronic sounds on some of the other tracks.

Totally worth a listen! Now to try and get tickets to a live show...
