Alt-J - SOLD OUT Biography
Alt-J’s name takes a little explaining. Named for the delta sign that can be created while typing on a computer, the symbolism of the key is what triggers the band's support. As guitarist/bassist Gwil Sainsbury explains, “in mathematical equations it [the delta sign] is used to show change.” With the theme of change charging the band's energy and creativity, Alt-J strives to contest the genre boundaries that stagnate so many other modern artists.
Admiration and favourable comparisons have come thick and fast for Alt-J. Before the release of their instantly sold-out debut single on Loud And Quiet last October, the band was described as “Nick Drake meets Gangsta Rap,” and they were likened to Wild Beasts, Radiohead's In Rainbows, The xx and Anthony & The Johnsons – acts acclaimed for their ability to create the kind of patient, sophisticated, intricate music that Alt-J is becoming known for. An early demo of the skittish, euphoric ‘Breezeblocks’ gained healthy radio play prior to release, and Alt-J’s Soundcloud generated over 70,000 plays in its first 6 months with little to no promotion.
