On September 22nd the English trio Alt-J released the excellent album “This Is All Yours” and once again they are one of the most requested acts for NorthSide.
In 2012, Alt-J released the debut album “An Awesome Wave”, which a few months later won the prestigious Mercury Prize, and with it the band gained a whole new level of fame, which among other things spawned gigs in some of the world’s biggest festivals. However, even before that P3 Denmark had supported the band by putting the single “Tessellate” in rotation, and this undoubtedly helped make Alt-J to one of the most requested names for NorthSide 2013, where they played their first Danish concert ever.
Since last visit at NorthSide, the group has been converted into a trio and musically there are also clear changes and developments. “Left Hand Free” offers groove rock, “Every Other Freckle” flirts with r&b, and the number of instruments and electronic gear has also increased in the band’s musical universe. In addition, Alt-J also added samples from, among others, Conor Oberst, Lianne La Havas, and Miley Cyrus to the productions, so there is plenty of surprises on the album.
Alt-J is without doubt one of the most popular and exciting new British bands right now, and it’s great to once again be able to present them at NorthSide.
