Alt-J TicketsAlt-J made a name for itself almost instantly. The band's musical journey began when Joe Newman, Thom Sonny Green, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Gwil Sainsbury met at Leeds University in 2007. Only one year after graduating, 2012 marked the release of its first album, An Awesome Wave, which was quickly celebrated by critics and, in turn, garnered a strong fan base in the UK. Two years later, its sophomore album, This is All Yours, made it to the top of the UK charts, paving the way for its commercial success in the UK as well as on a global stage. The band is known for Newman's unique voice and its postmodern lyrics, which are often reminiscent of their influences, Pink Floyd and Radiohead.
Riding an Awesome WaveAlthough the band's frontman and lead singer Joe Newman has alluded to the fact that he only went to university so he could start a band, none of the members thought they would make it as professional performers so fast or so furiously. The four friends' passion project, however, was so unique that listeners couldn't get enough. Even when Sainsbury left the band in 2014, its sound remained one that captivated audiences, and the chemistry of its members remained unshaken. The band continued to be celebrated not only in the UK but worldwide, in Australia and in the United States, as well. Its music has been featured in films, video games and on television shows, highlighting how versatile its song selection is and how well received it has truly been. Fans can attest, however, that its fame has by no means clouded its fantastic sound and dedication to its audience.
