Alt-J are a British indie rock band who have taken the music industry by storm since forming in 2007.
Consisting of Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Thom Green, the band first met when they were studying at Leeds University along with former member Gwil Sainsbury, and their debut single ‘Tessellate’ was released in 2011, after the guys had graduated.
The album ‘An Awesome Wave’ was released shortly after in 2012, debuting at no. 13 in the UK Album Chart, however it was 2014’s ‘This Is All Yours’ that really brought Alt-J to the forefront of the indie rock music scene going straight in at no.1 in the UK and no.4 in the US.
Since they have toured across the world from Sweden to Canada, the US to Australia and in 2015 they have been very prominent on the UK festival scene, headlining Latitude Festival and announced as performers at Leeds & Reading Festival.
