Critically acclaimed band Alt-J arrived in Manchester on a sub-zero night as part of their tour on the back of the recent release of ‘Reduxer’ which is a hip hop reimagining of their ‘Relaxer’ album release in late 2017.
Currently, they are touring as a 3 piece format made up of Thom Sunny Green on Drums, Gus Unger-Hamilton on keyboards and vocals, and Joe Newman on guitar and lead vocals.
It has to be said that the evening didn’t get off to the greatest of starts as the venue had to be evacuated, literally just as the band was about to go on stage due to a small fire that had been discovered. However, after 45 minutes the all-clear was given and everyone was back inside with the good news that despite the delay, Alt-J was still going to deliver the full set.
The expectant all seated crowd within the venue were not disappointed when they launched into ‘Something Good’ from their debut album ‘An awesome wave’.
