Alt-J
artist web site

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 were described as "Nick Drake meets Gangsta Rap," and they were likened to Wild Beasts, 'In Rainbows' era Radiohead, The xx and Anthony & The Johnsons - acts acclaimed for their ability to create the kind of patient, sophisticated, intricate music that alt-J do. An early demo of the skittish, euphoric 'Breezeblocks' gained healthy radio play without even being released and alt-J's Soundcloud generated over 70,000 plays in its first 6 months with little to no promotion. Veering wildly from psychedelic avant pop to skeletal folktronica, the finished album promises to trade in understated beauty one minute and epic oddities the next, just as you'd expect from a debut album that tackles everything from love to bullfighting to the heroic life of 1930s war photographer Gerda Taro, crushed by a tank on the frontline. Other tracks are inspired by cinema, including 'Matilda' (about Natalie Portman's character in Luc Besson's Leon) and the Good The Bad And The Ugly-referencing 'Tessellate.'
