ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE: FIRST LIGHT VIA BECAUSE MUSIC Scottish four-piece Django Django burst onto the scene in 2012 with their triumphant self-titled debut record which was universally lavished with praise; “updated psychedelia that beguiles and delights” (The Guardian), “consistently mind-melting and often brilliant” (Q), “bursting with ideas” (Pitchfork) and “gloriously, unpredictably new” (Mojo). By December it had been shortlisted for the Mercury Prize and named one of the albums of the year by Rolling Stone and NME. Today, we are thrilled to announce Django Django’s return via a brand new single titled ‘First Light’ from their hugely exciting second album, which is currently receiving finishing touches and is due for release spring this year. First Light opens with a huge, growling, wobbling bassline, slapping the listener in the face from the off, showing us Django Django are back and mean business. But it’s not long before the trademark soaring harmonies make a grand entrance and interwoven with Django Django’s unmistakable knack for a glorious ear-worm melody, this track is proof that the four piece are set to return in magnificent form.
