Django Django have returned with their dizzying new single "Spirals" - the group's first outing of 2020.

"Spirals" is the group's first new single since 2018's Winter's Beach EP, and is accompanied by a dizzying visual directed by Maxim Kelly.

Kelly says of the visual, "The approach behind "Spirals" by Django Django was to translate the psychedelic trip through The Victorian technique of the phénakisticope. The visual illusion generated by spinning the disks at the correct speed coupled with the shutter of a camera is both confusing and hypnotic. I was drawn to how the animations flow in and out, drifting and duping the mind and then back again. This felt a lot like the psychedelic experience to me. The challenge was to fuse the old with the modern. The analogue and the digital. Updating and modernising the technique."

The band are yet to follow up their 2018 album Marble Skies.

Django Django's "Spirals" single is out now on Because Music.
