Londoners Django Django have a fine pedigree in delivering intelligent electronica to the discerning masses, and the band have quickly followed up October’s Tic Tac Toe with another taster from their upcoming album in the form of the more electronic In Your Beat. Check out the animated, Sophie Koko Gate directed video for the song below.
In Your Beat is a real musical tour de force from the quartet: the opening phased synths and pulsating rhythm sets the tone, whilst the indie-esque vocals evoke thoughts of a modern-day Madchester sound.
It’s dance, it’s indie, it’s leftfield – but very much a unified whole, and the song has a human, emotional core to it as well as a slew of memorable hooks and melodies. It only takes one listen to know that the track is going to be a highlight at gig and festivals.
The album is being released in a variety of digital, vinyl and CD formats including a rare signed vinyl test pressing that’s limited to just ten copies. Rough Trade are retailing exclusive 2CD and 2LP editions which add six dub mixes courtesy of roots and reggae producer Wrongtom.
The band will be touring the UK, France, Germany and other countries early next year; you can check out the upcoming dates on the band’s official website. Art direction for the video is by Brodie Kaman.
