Single Review - Django Django - First Light
After a couple of years’ absence, Django Django have returned with First Light, a taster for their new album which is currently being finished off. What strikes you immediately about First Light is that it has a harder electronic sound than we're used to with Django Django, and that is no bad thing at all.
A pulsating electro bassline kicks the song off and it’s soon joined by superb, crisp synth sounds and an in-your-face drum machine that propels the song along wonderfully. The band's trademark vocals and harmonies soon arrive on the scene too, retaining their notable sound whilst adding an almost psychedelic feel, reminiscent of Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd.
As a point to how the band’s new album may sound, First Light is very encouraging and very exciting indeed.
