The quartet of David Maclean (drummer and producer), Vincent Neff (singer and guitarist), Jimmy Dixon (bassist) and Tommy Grace (synthesizer operator) met at Edinburgh College of Art, and formed Django Django in London in 2009.[2][3] David Maclean is the brother of musician and director John Maclean (ex The Beta Band[4]) and cousin of singer Lindsey Leven,[5] who performs with Guto Pryce in the band Gulp. Maclean and Grace are Scottish; Neff is originally from Northern Ireland while Dixon hails from Yorkshire.[1]

"Our name has absolutely nothing to do with Django Reinhardt", wrote the band (nicknamed djangovideo in their account on YouTube) beneath the video post for their track WOR.[6]

Django Django

Because Music released the band's self-titled debut album on 30 January 2012.[7] The album featured already released singles "Waveforms"[8][9] and "Default".[10][11][12] The debut album reached number 33 on the UK album charts in the first week of release.[13] It was then nominated for the 2012 Mercury Prize. Their song "Hail Bop" was featured in the football video game by EA Sports, FIFA 13 and "Waveforms" in Grand Theft Auto V. The album received considerable critical acclaim,[14][15] and featured in the end-of-year lists of both Rolling Stone [16] and the NME.[17] The band were surprised to achieve this success with Maclean commenting "I thought it would be an underground album that would sell a few hundred copies”.[1]

Born Under Saturn

Their latest album, Born Under Saturn, was released on 4 May 2015[18] which was well received by fans and critics alike.
