British art-rockers Django Django played an entrancing show at Union Transfer on Friday night. Touring in support of their sophomore release, this year’s Born Under Saturn, the quartet played a captivating of new material but pulling strongly from their acclaimed self-titled debut album. The well-balanced set included fan favorites such as “Hail Bop,” “Default,” and “First Light.”
Django Django’s unique and experimental pop sound is largely driven by their heavily percussive music, filled with guitar licks, saxophone melodies, synths, and layered vocals. To add to the visual aspect of the show, Django Django’s set was enhanced with image projections and a trippy lighting design. The crowd was mesmerized by the performance, dancing along throughout the entire set.
Indie-pop band Wild Belle opened the show with a rocking performance. Complete with a backing band, siblings Natalie and Elliot Bergman played an entertaining set of their multi-genre influenced music. With a new album set for release in January, the group sampled a few of their new songs to the excited crowd.
