  2. 9.0 |   Northern Transmissions

    Across 13 tracks Django Django have carved out a wonderful odyssey, where the sonic terrains and landscapes come with a tangible feel. It’s this palpable sense of motion and dexterity that gives ‘Glow In The Dark’ an intrepid air, one of excitement but also one that comes with a pensive feeling of anxiety

    Another excellent LP – their most distinctive and mature so far

  4. 8.0 |   The Arts Desk

    Django Django, like Hot Chip, like Metronomy, are a pop band. A psychedelic, clever, festival-friendly one, but a pop band nonetheless, and it’s this which set them apart at the beginning and this which will continue to give them longevity

  5. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    It’s three years since Django Django released their third album, Marble Skies, a decent album in its own right, but I’m delighted to say that the band seems to have used the interim time to craft a set of songs that sees them right on the top of their game. Great stuff

  8. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Genre-straddling aesthetes finetune their formula. Print edition only

  9. 8.0 |   Mojo

  10. 8.0 |   musicOMH

    Django Django’s style is well-worn by now, and a little more stylistic or structural invention wouldn’t go amiss, but Glowing In The Dark still delivers the goods with ease

  11. 8.0 |   XS Noize

    They accomplish the rare feat of making pre-recorded music sound not only live but alive, approaching dark themes with optimism

  12. 8.0 |   DIY

  16. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Read Review

  17. 7.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    Django Django’s fourth album doesn’t radically reinvent the band’s sound, but it is more effortless and freewheeling than their last outing
    Read Review

  18. 7.2 |   Beats Per Minute

    Somewhat of a return to form, the album sounds like warm summer nights and white wine, 90s videogames and 00s Beck; there’s a lot here that contradicts the still-ongoing mood of lockdown fatigue

  19. 7.1 |   Pitchfork

    The UK psych-rockers’ pan-genre approach benefits from a little extra curation and fun. As versatile as they are, their stylistic detours eventually feel like overkill
