∆ (pronounced Alt-J) came together whilst they were all studying their 2nd year at Leeds University in 2008. A small set was quickly developed and the band’s reputation began to build through some crammed gigs in their front room. A name change followed, the band was previously known as FILMS, and they uprooted and took their unique brand of ‘folk-step’ to Cambridge.
They have had been likened to Wild Beasts, ‘In Rainbows’ era Radiohead, The xx and Anthony & The Johnsons – four acclaimed acts noticeable by their ability to create the kind of patient, sophisticated, intricate music that ∆ do. On the back off the sold-out single ‘Matilda/Fitzpleasure’ their debut album, ‘An Awesome Wave’, is scheduled for release on 28th May, which will further explore ∆’s varied soundscapes and percussive, experimental grooves. Veering wildly from psychedelic avant pop to skeletal folktronica, the finished album promises to trade in understated beauty one minute and epic oddities the next.
