Egyptian Hip Hop are a fresh faced four piece indie rock band from London who have chosen a strange name for themselves. Whether you think it’s a good or bad title, it’s certainly a memorable one and their aqueous cover of Django Django’s “Love Darts” deserves your precious brain space as well. It has the cohesive, nostalgic feel of onetime tourmates Ariel Pink, with the occasional crispness of a good Nicolas Jaar groove. Listen in the soundcloud below.
