Django Django: the band so good, they named themselves twice. This is somewhat apt, given that you will be hearing a lot about them at two opposing points in 2012; one being when their debut eponymous album was released in January – the other will be when album of the year lists bare fruition this December. ‘Cos Django Django will be up there.
The Dalston via Edinburgh four-piece have chosen the delightful, saccharine ‘Waveforms’ as the lead single – and its sun-kissed Beach Boys harmonies encapsulate their warm sound and pop sensibilities perfectly. Tightly layered 60′s vocals melt into amorphous 80′s electronics underneath, with the result a glorious psych-pop dream synergy of old and new. Gorgeous.
