With its addictive drum beat and bassline, ‘Black Cadillac’ is a treat for the ears, featuring Vincent Neff’s layered vocals against a backdrop of grooving guitars and jazzy brass solos.
The video, directed by James Hankin, plunges deep into Django Django’s interest in UFOs, presented through nostalgic fish-eye visuals.
“I came up with this idea out of the blue one day, probably in a bit of a daydream when listening back to the song,” said Dave Maclean, the band’s producer and drummer. “I approached Hankin to help me bring it to life and he’s done a great job directing it, managing to capture the surreal dream-like atmosphere brilliantly.”
Hankin, for his part, was equally enthusiastic about the project. “I’ve been following the Djangos pretty much since day one and always thought it would be cool to make a video together. It felt like a very natural thing to be doing, actually,” he said.
