I was introduced last night to the amazing British indie-rock band Django Django after visiting a close friend from back home for dinner. Relaxing after our feed, the red wine helped lift us into a heady mix of tunes from the euphoric album. The band formed back in 2009 and all four members are pals from school in Edinburgh. The quartet released their self-titled debut album in January of this year and it went straight to number 33 in the charts, showcasing their magnetic appeal and edgy sound.
Below is their catchy first single, ‘Default’ and Soundcloud page.

Grizzly Bear’s new song, ‘Sleeping Ute’ was posted on the bands website in early June as a sneak preview to their highly anticipated fourth album set to be released in September. The band are basking in phenomenal success having toured with iconic British rock band, Radiohead, played major festivals including Lollapalooza and even becoming bum chums with music legend, Paul Simon accompanying him onstage for five performances. Grizzly Bear count notorious rapper Jay Z as a firm follower amongst their far-reaching fanbase, he hopes bands like Grizzly Bear, “will push Hip-Hop to go further”. The Brooklyn based indie rock band are classed as experimental, psychedelic indie rock and ‘Sleeping Ute’ is a brilliant reminder of their permeating, awe-inspiring lyric and sound.
Grizzly Bear are confirmed to play Australia for the first time ever this year on Novemeber 11th at the two day Harvest festival in Melbourne.
