alt-J is a english indie/experimental rock band from Leeds, England (a city very close to my hometown, Manchester) that was formed back in 2007.
They have one studio album, An Awesome Wave which came out in 2012 and has songs like Breezeblocks, Ripe and Ruin, Fitzpleasure, Matilda, Taro, Tessellate and more!
I remember listening to Tessellate for the first time and thinking “Wooooaaaah” (have a listen to it and you’ll understand exactly what I mean!), plus, the video is very stylish and sophisticated.
I got the opportunity to see the boys perform live a few months ago and they were staggering! Their music has a very cool twang to it, makes you want to let go, shake it up, lose yourself.
They just released their latest single Every Other Freckle and you can have a listen to it here! It will be on their album This Is All Yours which will come out this September!
I must say, this band is definitely in my tops at the moment and have been for a while now!
