THIS EVENT HAS ENDED
Two years ago, Django Django’s producer/drummer David Maclean was standing backstage at a festival in Chicago, chatting to a group of people, when he happened to raise his eyes skywards. “It was really amazing,” he remembers. “The sky looked like a massive sheet of marble. We were all just kind of staring at it. It triggered something.”

Maclean immediately made a note of the words Marble Skies, now the title of the band’s third album. It’s a very Django Django title, following on from their eponymous, Mercury-nominated 2012 debut album and its 2015 follow-up Born Under Saturn to underline their inherent wonder of all things natural and elemental.

After the rave-shaped grooves and expansive arrangements of its predecessor, Marble Skies is a more concise and focused offering which recalls the dynamic, genre-blurring music of their debut. Where Born Under Saturn was recorded in Angelic in rural Northants, in what Django Django regard as a “proper” studio filled with an array of vintage synthesizers, Marble Skies found them returning to the handmade, cut-and-paste approach of the Django Django album. “We definitely felt like we wanted to take back control a bit more,” says singer/guitarist Vincent Neff. “The first one was done with a very limited palette because we didn’t have that much equipment. Then with the second we had everything.”
