Album: Born Under Saturn (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a single from Django Django's second album, which is named after Born Under Saturn, a classic work of art criticism. "I found the book in a charity shop," the band's drummer and producer David McLean told NME. "I thought it was going to be about mythology or the occult, then I started reading it, and it was a pretty heavy thesis."

    "Interesting enough, but the title grabbed me more than what the actual book was about," he continued. "Anything to do with mythology or the occult is interesting to me, or planets, or outer space – anything that's a bit mysterious. It just seemed to fit with the album image, so we nicked it. We tried changing it and calling it Born Under Venus or Born under Jupiter, but nothing worked."
  • The song's music video was filmed at Framestore film studios, which is also where the 2013 film Gravity was made. Director Natalia Stuyk called the clip, "a futuristic and surreal take on the traditional performance music video."
