I’ve not done a music monday post for a while, I always get side tracked and to be fair a lot of the time I don’t listen to many new bands anyway. Saying that, one band I cannot get enough of right now is Alt J. I saw them at Leeds Festival after I was tipped off that they were the next big thing. I must say after Of Monsters and Men and Scroobius Pip, they were probably one of the best bands I saw Leeds weekend this year. I particularly like this song from their album An Awesome Wave.
I think I love this song so much because it reminds me of Where The Wild Things Are every time I listen to it. I don’t rate the video highly though, they could of done so much more with the idea of this song.
Alt J are called Alt J because if you hit those keys on an Mac it makes a triangle, despite that being the epitome of hipster and in general the band are kind of everything I’ve grown to dislike, I still have them on repeat right now. Usually when singers put on this weird voice I think they’re trying a bit too hard, but with songs like this, I can ignore that for a while. What are you listening to lately? I feel now that I’ve branched out and finally listened to a few new bands, I could be on a roll.
