Alt-J Biography

The self-proclaimed “Folk-step” band Alt-J was formed in Leeds, ENGLAND, in 2007, during which time all the original members met: lead singer + guitarist Joe Newman, guitarist + bassist Gwil Sainsbury, keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton and drummer Thom Green.
Pronounced “alt-J”, the delta sign is created when you hold down the alt key on your computer keyboard and punch ‘J’ on a Mac computer. The symbol has a deeper meaning for group as Gwil Sainsbury notes, “in mathematical equations it's used to show change” and the band’s relatively new name came at a turning point in their lives.
