alt-J is an indie/alternative band from the UK, formed in 2008 after Joe Newman (guitar/vocals), Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards), Thom Green (drums) and former member Gwil Sainsbury (guitarist/bassist) met at Leeds University. Having forged their own unique sound combining elements of electronic, folk and indie rock, the band recorded and released their debut album 'An Awesome Wave' in 2012. Critically lauded, 'An Awesome Wave' won the Mercury Music Prize, an Ivor Novello 'Album Award' for songwriting and received three BRIT award nominations. The album has now gone platinum in the UK and sold over 1,000,000 units worldwide.
After the departure of former guitarist/bassist Gwil Sainsbury in 2014, alt-J continued on as a 3-piece and recorded their sophomore album 'This Is All Yours'. Following in the steps of their debut album’s success, ‘This Is All Yours’ was released in September 2014 to rapturous acclaim and debuted at #1 in the UK charts. As described by Q Magazine, "this sumptuous riddle of a record is a celebration of everything but normality". Earlier this December, the album was also nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the Grammy Awards.
