Since releasing their self-titled album back in 2012, Django Django created their own little space in the music industry as their psychedelic-tinged rock and unique electronic flourishes was completely new and revolutionary.
The groundbreaking debut album saw the quartet catapult to unforeseen levels of success, culminating in a Mercury Prize nomination, mentions in end-of-year polls from both NME and Rolling Stone, and features in video games including FIFA 13 and Grand Theft Auto V.
The album’s genre-blending brand of far-out indie/electronica saw Django Django deliver a debut filled with tracks that have since become long standing fan favourites; from the hypnotic ‘Hail Bop’, to the buoyant and buzzing ‘Default’, the laidback psych cut ‘Life’s a Beach’ and beyond.
Fast forward to 2022 and Django Django are commemorating its tenth anniversary in style with a deluxe special edition package.
Speaking of the upcoming re-release, singer and guitarist Vincent Neff says: “Our debut album is 10 years old! It was the album that set us on our way and it’ll always be a special one to us. It reminds us of recording in Dave’s bedroom, playing at small club nights up and down the UK and taking in all the new music that was being made in East London at that time.
“When we released it, we had no idea what would happen, but it ended up being the start of a crazy journey for us.”
Django Django will release ‘Django Django’ (10th Anniversary Edition) will be released on 27th May 2022. Pre-order here.
