Although this gig is at the beginning of Django Django’s UK tour, tonight is something of a triumph, as it is a sold out London show well in advance of their debut album release early next year.

They have really made an effort with their visuals, engaging the artist Kim Coleman to create three backdrops involving projectors and venetian blinds which change throughout the show. In fact the band's percussion dominated introduction to the set is accompanied by a light bulb swinging in the central display and some movie footage of a light bulb in the side screens, as the song turns into the mesmeric ‘Love's Dart’. As soon as the lights settle we realise that the band are wearing similar tops, individually designed but all based on a similar theme. Clearly the artistic side to Django Django is a big part of their overall act.

Whilst the visuals are striking, it is mainly a word-of-mouth buzz around their music that has pulled such a crowd tonight. Physical releases have been sporadic but this crowd seem to know quite a few of the songs, presumably from finding them via the internet or chancing upon them on one of their high profile support slots - they recently backed-up Metronomy at the Royal Albert Hall, for instance. They have an intriguing mix of influences; during the hour long set there are harmony vocals, surf guitar, techno beats, reverb-heavy psychedelia, massed percussion and some killer tunes.

It’s a sign of their confidence that they play their most well known song, 'Storm', third in the set. It is a couple of years old now, but they have beefed up the opening with some techno beats and it still sounds great.

'Firewater' follows it, heavy on the vocal reverb but combining elements of psychedelia with a powerful glam-rock stomp.

Current single 'Waveforms' is another highlight, a weaving melody that manages to hint at both the Beach Boys and Hot Chip, and again they have some impressively memorable visuals, with golden letters shifting around on the backdrop.

They introduce a new song, ‘Hand of Man’, which floats along on an acoustic guitar melody. It blends seamlessly into ‘Skies Over Cairo’ with the entire band playing some percussion which then builds into a lively tune with a heavy Egyptian vibe. Their occasional impulse to all to take up some drumming makes me think of the late great Beta Band.

‘Life's a Beach’ has some tasty Link Wray style twang and beats, and the epic ‘Wor’ closes the main set, complete with siren sounds, heavy reverb on the voices, whoops, and a tune somewhere between 60's psychedelia and a surf guitar band. The pounding toms really make an impression on this one too.

Unsurprisingly the crowd call them back for an encore, ‘Silver Rays’, which is more synth-pop than the majority of the set, but at the heart of it is that big stomping beat. With such an impressive performance, it’s clear that the future is very bright for these guys.
