alt-J: 10th Anniversary of An Awesome Wave

alt-J are one of the most successful British bands of the millennium. Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Thom Sonny Green have released four studio albums that, between them, have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed over two and a half billion times.

Their 2012 Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award-winning debut An Awesome Wave, was followed two years later by their number one, GRAMMY and BRIT Award-nominated album This Is All Yours. Released in 2017, RELAXER flew straight into the top 10 of the UK album chart, debuted at #5 on the Billboard album chart and became their second album to be nominated for the Mercury Prize. They have headlined such prestigious venues as the O2 Arena, London and Madison Square Garden, New York, as well as numerous festivals across the globe. They returned in 2022 with their new album, The Dream. An album where true-crime inspired stories and tales of Hollywood and the Chateau Marmont rub shoulders with some of the band’s more personal moments to-date. Both beauty and darkness lay side-by-side—often seamlessly merging on the same track, a purposeful choice that pays dividends across the record. The Dream is the sound of a band experimenting more than they ever have, recharged and reinvigorated—the twelve tracks make for the fullest sounding alt-J record yet.
