Alt-J With their infectious genre hopping tunes, Alt-J fast became one of the most successful British bands of 2012. Their debut album 'An Awesome Wave' - a result of five years' work recorded while at university - won the Mercury music prize, they've played sold-out shows in the US and have charted in numerous European countries with their wonderfully complex singles 'Tessellate' and 'Matilda'. The Cambridge-based band have rebranded guitar music, offering a hybrid of electro-rock and indie-pop, as well as being influenced by hip hop and trip hop. Success seems to be snowballing for Alt-J, and 2013 is set to be another promising year.

 

About Brixton Academy

This former cinema with its art deco interior, proscenium arch and 140ft dome is London's most celebrated venue for live music, winning Best Live Venue at the NME awards for 7 years in a row. The famous sloping floor means there are great views wherever you're standing, though keeping your feet can be a problem at the more raucous rock gigs. More about Brixton Academy
