Django Django have announced their new album, ‘Glowing in the Dark’.
Billed as “a creative rebirth for the band of sorts”, it includes a collab with Charlotte Gainsbourg, and is preceded by the title-track and a video directed by NYC artist and illustrator Braulio Amadio.
Vincent Neff explains: “He gave me some loose directions of what he wanted me to do via email. Then me and my brother in law got a tripod, my phone and a speaker and went to a deserted industrial estate around the back of my house and shot a bunch of stuff then turned the footage over to Braulio. We love what he’s done with it and how the energy and vibe of the visuals really lock with the track.”
Amadio adds: “I didn’t want to be literal and do something *glowing in the dark*, so in my head the video is somewhat an abstract representation of the song title without being too obvious. I wanted it to feel organic, I wanted to feel trippy, vibrant and colorful. This was done during the pandemic, with Vinny shooting himself on a greenscreen at home with his iphone, so I just wanted to take him out of the weird world and time we are all living through right now and transport him to a more fun place far away from here.”
