Django Django share new single "First Light"

12 January 2015, 16:40 | Written by Laurence Day

Django Django have fully pulled the trigger on new single "First Light", a release they teased towards the back-end of last week.

"First Light" is the first new material proper from the band since 2012, the year they released their self-titled debut. They rose alongside alt-J as quirky math-pop experimenters, but where alt-J gunned for stadiums and big statements, Django Django have bided their time, working slavishly over new material; the result is a firmer grasp of the electronic arts. They use trembling, dark electro-pop bassline, screwy beats and a static fuzz on "First Light", and it's clear that the comparisons they were once plagued with are long dead.

The single is available now, either vinylly or digitally.

Listen to the track below. They've confirmed a few live dates, which you can peer over after.


14, The Wardrobe, Leeds (warm up show)
