Music Review: “Giant” by Django Django


TRACK 1

“Giant”

From Django Django’s Born Under Saturn

RIBBON

Liner notes: Known for unlikely blends, the foursome combines sunny vocal harmonies, funky grooves, and surf guitar to refreshing effect on its sophomore album.

Behind the music: The musicians—drummer David Maclean is the brother of Beta Band’s John Maclean—met at the Edinburgh College of Art. And no, it’s not a Quentin Tarantino reference.

Check it out if you like: Eclectic Brit-poppers like Blur and Arctic Monkeys.

We couldn’t find a video for Giant online, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a feel for Django Django. The above video is of “Reflections” one of the other songs off the band’s new album Born Under Saturn.
