What we're listening to - Django Django

Sadly the NME pipped us to the "so good they named it twice" line. However, Django Django are so good, we're prepared to use the so-good-they-named-it-twice line, twice. Three times if we have to.

The foursome met at art school in Edinburgh, and as you can see from their reading tastes, they're an intelligent, high-minded bunch (and before you accuse lead singer Vincent Neff of letting the side down, that's actually a University Challenge quiz machine he's playing).

Musically they're open-minded and adventurous, while somehow still managing to sound pared back (a trait that has inevitably earned them Beta Band comparisons). The steady thud of drum and vocal and bass that opens "Storm" is gradually overlaid with honky-tonk piano and even exalted male-voice harmonies, while the delicately beautiful "Love's Dart" makes you feel for a moment like you're wending your way through the Mojave desert on the back of a thirsty horse. Or maybe that's just us.

Either way, you'd be advised to get in on these guys early. Their new double A-side single, "Storm"/"Love's Dart" is out now, listen to it here, buy it here, and if you're in London check them out tonight at Moshi Moshi at The Garage.
