Django Django - Django Django

 
04 November, 2012
 
 
 

By Harry Dam

 

New Order, synths, garage rock, surf guitars, Britpop, there is a bit of everything in this hybrid, mostly upbeat record. It rarely runs out of energy though, and is wildly unpredictable.

 

There are some uplifting single-calibre tracks like Default and Storm. Then there are some darker gems like Hail Bop and Skies Over Cairo and finally there's firey Wor, opening with a great primitive riff nicely combined with sirens.

 

Given their Mercury Prize nomination and the fact that Wor is already in a telecoms commercial, Django Django have recently been moving up the ranks of stardom. Makes sense, judging from the album's ambition, catchy dance-friendly tunes and art school roots.
