A English indie rock band formed in 2007 consisting of three talents - Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Thom Green. When Joe showed Gus, Thom and Gwil (a former bandmate) some songs he'd written over the past few years. A small set was quickly developed using these and newly-written songs, and the band began to build a modest reputation through some crammed gigs in their front room.
Alt-J has won numerous awards along with the British Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Awards. Not to mention, This Is All Yours received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Alternative Music Album at the 57th Grammy Awards, and for IMPALA's European Independent Album of the Year Award.
