This Is Our Jam: Django Django, "Default"

While the end of the year is often seen as an internet dead zone (and by extension, a musical one, too), it’s a great time for catching up on all of the songs and albums you may have missed over the past year. One of these songs is Django Django’s “Default,” a thumping post-punk rocker that sounds as if Franz Ferdinand grabbed a snare sample from Major Lazer’s dancehall toybox.
“Default” is pop-rock mishmash that’s held together by a sheer audacity of ideas — one of the first tracks that references turn of the millennium British buzz bands while somehow also sounding forward-thinking. We’ll get a better idea of where Django Django is heading when its debut album comes out at the end of the month, but after listening to “Default,” it seems the next single we hear could sound like, well, pretty much anything.
