Tremble. Meanwhile, the hazy Zombies-like summer pop ofChampagne, which explores the joys and ills of alcohol, was inspired by a boat trip on the Seine that the Djangos enjoyed at theinvitation of their label.The more dance-orientated side of Django Django comes out with the twisted 80s electro pop of In Your Beat andthe Jamaican dancehall-influenced Surface To Air, a dreamy-headed pop song fronted by Rebecca Taylor of Slow Club.Originally conceived as a duet for Taylor and Neff, it ended up being the first Django Django track to solely feature an outsidesinger. Its nice to hear those kind of moments, says Neff. When youre listening to an album, it pulls you out of hearing thesame voice for every track. Another more surprising collaborator on Marble Skies is Jan Hammer, the Czech-born, Americanbasedjazz-fusion and electronic artist who shares writing credits with the band on the floaty Sun Dials.If theres a thread running through Marble Skies, its one of reflection on things past and present, and finding some kindof peace with your place in the grand scheme of things. This sentiment reaches its peak amid the hypnotic groove ofFountains, with its chorus refrain: Bigger Than You And Me. Maclean notes, Its just this idea of things constantly turningand moving on and youre just kind of part of it and watching it and helpless to time passing. But sort of becoming at easewith that.
