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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously good. 1 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beat Driven Pop 23 Feb 2012
By Syriat TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect... 21 Aug 2012
By Si
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking debut, something a little different. 1 Mar 2012
By Dan65
Format:Audio CD
I heard Default on the radio so went searching for other tracks. Checkout Waveforms and Love's Dart which I think have also been released previously.
The album has a great mix of harmonised vocals, foot tapping beats and synths. Doesn't sound catchy but turns out to be more infectious than nits in a nursery.

Each listen results in a new favourite and it carries on delivering right to the end, where many albums start 'winding down' around track 8 or 9 this keeps going
with some real gems like Storm and Silver Rays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acid surf-rock pop-a-tronica 10 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

A refreshingly happy sound. The 3rd track is most recognisable, but the whole album is really good...grows on you.
I love the rhythms and pace. There is a distinctive quality to the sound. Gorgeous!

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...
