alt-J have solidified their position as one of most successful indie bands of the generation. Their first album An Awesome Wave was the 2012 Mercury Prize winner, while their follow-up This Is All Yours topped the charts in its first week of release in the UK and the USA: an impressive feat.
The band have also conquered the USA on tour, joining only a handful of UK bands to break through to the American market in the last decade. They’ve sold out shows in the most American of cities, and played on the grandest of stages, including the Coachella festival and New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Keys player Gus Unger-Hamilton has used an UltraNova on stage, but now prefers an Impulse 61 as his main controller. The band have a BassStation II in the studio.
