New album, new tour for Django Django! The British band will be live in Razzmatazz today. After a first eponymous album released in 2012 followed by “Born Under Saturn” out in 2015, British members of Django Django are back with a new and third opus called “Marble skies”,
Django Django 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.
Django Django are set to return this winter with a new album entitled, Marble Skies. Serving as the follow-up to their 2015 sophomore effort, Born Under Saturn, the 10-track effort is due out January 26th via Ribbon Music.
Three of the band’s members — vocalist/guitarist Vincent Neff, bassist Jimmy Dixon, and synth player Tommy Grace — were joined by Metronomy drummer Anna Prior for the initial recording sessions at Tottenham, London’s Urchin Studios. After 10 days of jamming, they sent the material to drummer/producer David Maclean, who chopped and edited the work until it was ready to become a true album. The foursome reconvened all together at their own studio in north London to produce what became Marble Skies.
As a first listen to what this back-to-basics approach produced, the band has shared the record’s lead single, A frantic art-rock number with echoing notes of psychedelic rockabilly, the track comes with a video directed by Maclean’s brother John, also known for helming Slow West.
