BBC Music review of An Awesome Wave

Take a look here to see if Alt-J is showing somewhere nearby

The first time most people took notice of Alt-J was when their video for single Something Good made a big splash online. A glittering, slow motion portrait of a bullfight was perfectly attuned to the band's trip-hop inflected indie rock. Since then, there was no stopping the quartet, who met at Leeds University in 2007. Their debut record An Awesome Wave won Britain's prestigious Mercury Music Prize in 2012, and spurred on by the success of singles like Breezeblocks and the Leon-inspired Matilda, went on to sell over a million copies worldwide.

Guitarist Gwil Sainsbury departed the group in 2014, but the three remaining members vowed to keep the band together. They've been busy on their follow-up record, which is entitled This is All Yours. Not too much is known about this sophomore effort (in this age of social media saturation the band are unusually secretive) but it's without doubt one of 2014's most anticipated albums. The band have announced a world tour in support of the record, which will be coming through North America and Canada this October and November.
