Everything combines to enrich, enliven and add texture to the band’s wild aesthetic, which is unlike anything else you’re going to experience this year.

The melodies are catch and pleasing, full of sharply written, witty lyricism. Not a thing about it is forced. It’s a classic slow grower, immediately pleasing but not striking.

Django Django are bursting with ideas and an intriguing aesthetic that would suggest that their own goals are very keenly defined

For all its spaced-out, psychedelic wonder and tendency to jump all over the musical map, Django Django comes across as too honest to ever feel over the top.

Their creativity merits praise, and the end result has much to offer.

Pounding, experimental indie pop that is taken to different effects in each song.

Hail Bop, Default, Love's Dart, Storm, Skies Over Cairo

The album starts out quite promising with the undeniably fun 'Hail Bop.' Then, it quickly unfolds into your typical indie flavour of the month album with a handful of painfully bland moments. I still see potential for their sound.

Favourite tracks: Hail Bop, Life's a Beach

A lil' bit repetitive, but some songs had their real standout and their complete own image. This album is so enjoyable to listen to. Glad I got to listen to it right before summer, because this will be played like a motherfucker when that time comes.

Fav. tracks: Hail Bop, Default, Waveforms

Django Django is a tight, neatly packed album filled with colorful and ambitious. It doesn't have enough to offer to keep it prominent in your mind, but that doesn't keep it from having a good time.
