Django Django Make Art Out of Buildings in Their ‘First Light’ Video

Django Django, First Light

Give Django Django points for commitment to and execution of a concept. Their Daniel Swan-directed video for “First Light,” the lead single from the upcoming Born Under Saturn, is hardly the most eventful of clips — the video is little more than a series of pan-outs on sleek, glass-heavy buildings, which reflect the incoming sunlight and occasionally make visible heat waves — but it’s certainly one of the more striking visuals you’ll see for a song this week, almost Chris Cunningham-esque in its cold, hypnotizing futurism. If nothing else, it proves that old Ron Swanson truism about art: Anything is anything. Watch the video above.
