Running through their third record, there's a feeling that Django Django have wildly eclectic tastes, and with infectious and nervous excitement want to create music that patches it all together, dodging pigeonholes and subverting their listener's expectations in the process. Stark changes in direction happen from track to track, and often within the songs themselves: take for example the tone set with powerhouse synth-pop opener 'Marble Skies', which is immediately turned on its head with second track 'Surface To Air', a brash and addictive dancehall jam, by the fourth track 'Tic Tac Toe' they're fully immersed in euphoric indie-psych. These changes in gear happen throughout the album, and it's to the band's credit that the individual songs and the album as a whole, bind together so well. This risk-taking is what makes Marble Skies a highly accomplished and ambitious album, but perhaps more importantly, their most fun album so far.
