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 2012, they've played sold-out shows in the US and have charted in numerous European countries. Now the nonchalant four-piece are coming to London for three live gigs. The Cambridge based band offers a hybrid of electro-rock and indie-pop, as well as taking influences from hip hop and trip hop. They've rebranded guitar music as fashionable and boast singles such as Tessellate, "an onomatopoeic puzzle of angular beats and pointed sexual advances" (The Guardian) and Matilda, a poignant piece that references classic cult film 'Leon' and associates love with the pin from a grenade. With further rave reviews from NME and the BBC, 2013 is likely to be another promising year for the band.

About Shepherd's Bush Empire

The Empire is, admittedly, not the most comfortable of venues - the standing area is sunk so far beneath the main stage that anyone under six foot risks painful neck injuries if they want to watch from close-up. Still, the faded grandeur of this former BBC recording theatre, a fantastic acoustic, and the cheerful international population of Shepherd's Bush all add up to a fun live experience, and many musicians cite this as their favourite London venue to perform in.
