Alt-J are a four piece that met while attending Leeds University in the UK. Their new album, An Awesome Wave, is out now on Canvasback/ Atlantic.
“By making geometry sound raunchy, this Leeds-born band are bridging the gap between Wild Beasts’ sauciness and smart dance-pop.” – NME
alt-J (∆)’s name takes a little explaining. Pronounced “alt-J”, the delta sign is created when you hold down the alt key on your computer keyboard and punch ‘J’ on a Mac computer. The symbol has a deeper meaning for the band, as guitarist/bassist Gwil Sainsbury notes, “in mathematical equations it’s used to show change,” and the band’s relatively new name came at a turning point in their lives.
