An Awesome Wave – alt-J
Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne
The unusual band name alt-J results from the key combination for the delta symbol - assuming you are using a Mac with UK keyboard layout ... As unusual as the name is the music of this extraordinary band from Leeds. Although references to the Wild Beasts, Radiohead (in the "In Rainbows" era) or The XX are possible, alt-J can't be pigeonholed with any of these bands. And descriptions like "Folk-Step" or "Nick Drake meets Gangsta Rap" describe the innovative sound of this band only in the beginning
On their brilliant debut, Alt-J explore a wide range of soundscapes between folk, hip hop, indie and pop music, sounding refreshingly different and more contemporary than most of the music market today. You can bet that alt-J will be among the newcomers of the year!
"Strange music. Interesting music. Great music. Insights gained in the exact order of alt-js electro-folk-pop." (musikexpress, August 2012)
