Alt-J, whose logo is a delta symbol, are an English indie rock quartet. In 2007, students Joe Newman (guitar/vocals), Gwil Sainsbury (guitar/bass), Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards), and Thom Green (drums) formed the band. Their name comes from the Mac key code for creating the delta symbol, alt + J. Their fame has mostly come from their first full album, An Awesome Wave (2012). They are well-known in the UK now and still gaining popularity in the US, but you’ve probably heard more of them than you realize. Their song “Buffalo” was featured in Silver Linings Playbook and they have performed in many festivals. This will be their first US tour, so get the first chance to see these rising British stars!
