UK pop rockers Django Django may take their name from the French jazz musician Django Reinhardt, but they get their dizzyingly hyper-rhythmic, electro-pervaded indie pop from the school of Franz Ferdinand, and they get their staunchly DIY aesthetic (they recorded their upcoming self-titled debut record entirely in their drummer’s bedroom on broken or antiquated equipment) from somewhere else entirely. On their first music video, for the truly irresistible “Default,” the band went for a stop-motion clip that reflects their art-school beginnings – printing out over 4,000 stills from a performance video, adding some abstract, colorful painting, and re-animating the whole thing. Both visually and aurally infectious, you’ll be watching and listening for days. Django Django’s eponymous debut album is out January 30th.
