Django Django follows up 2015's Born Under Saturn with Marble Skies, an eclectic album that filters the band's art/psychedelia roots through dance music. The genre-blurring is reminiscent of the UK band's self-titled debut: "It's a return to form; an album which finds them returning to the handmade, cut-and-paste approach of the past." Marble Skies is also decidedly more pop leaning, with the upbeat, vocoder-assisted title track setting the tone. "Tic Tac Toe," a tune indebted to prog rock that sports a strong, sing-along chorus, is just as energetic, and "In Your Beat" is another potent dance-rock gem that stands out. One more track to check out is "Surface to Air." Rebeca Taylor lends smooth vocals over the dancehall-influenced rhythms and melodies, and we could easily see this one moving bodies on the dancefloor.
