Django Django – New Single Out October 17th + Uk shows
aaamusic | On 05, Sep 2011
For four, long years, Django Django have been busy doing great things in the East London bedroom slept in by their drummer, producer and de facto leader David Maclean. Amongst those great things is their brand new single ‘Waveforms’ which Because are proud to release on October 17th.
Vincent Neff (singer and guitarist), Jimmy Dixon (bassist) and synth operator Tommy Grace make up the quartet, who met at art school in Edinburgh. First coming to peoples’ attentions after a gradual migration to London a couple of years back with double A-side single “Storm”/”Love’s Dart”, the track 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. The impression one gets of Django Django is of a band laying down the first, meticulously measured borders on some vast map of a world that only they are privy to.
Cue, new single – ‘Waveforms’. Taken from the bands debut album due early next year, it sounds like The Glitter Band’s “Rock And Roll Part 2” disappearing from sight like a particularly successful Kongming Lantern.
By banging together their thirst for adventure and their exacting high standards, its Django’s time to get out of the bedroom, and let playtime begin.
