Listed amongst the 'up and coming' and 'bands to watch' by countless critics across the globe, The Frontier Touring Company is thrilled to announce that alt-J will be making their debut visit to Australia next month, playing Oxford Art Factory on Thursday 18 October.
Their unique band name is pronounced 'alt-J', named after the keystrokes required to make the symbol on a Mac computer.
The symbol represents change in mathematical equations and suitably the name was sprouted at a turning point in the band members' lives.
Broadly classed as art rock but taking in the influences of everything from trip-hop, folk music, electronic and post-rock, alt-J have created a genre of music that is uniquely their own.
alt-J's appropriately titled debut album An Awesome Wave (out now through Liberator Music) takes listeners on a journey that ebbs and flows through thirteen hypnotic tracks.
'On the surface, this is smart alt-pop, but alt-J have messed with the formula just enough to make this a brilliantly disquieting debut.
In refusing to submit to the rigours of a genre, they might just have made themselves masters of their own.' - NME
'There is little to find disappointing about An Awesome Wave. Each new song builds on the last, spiralling off on a new path, testing, experimenting, returning again to familiar ground.' - Drowned In Sound
Don't miss the opportunity to see why this four-piece have caught the attention of countless critics and music lovers across the globe.
