Two months ago we featured a band in Loud And Quiet called ∆ (pronounced Alt-J). They sounded unlike anyone else to us, and now we are pleased to announced that we will be releasing the band’s debut AA single, ‘Bloodflood/Tessellate’ this coming October.

Two months ago we featured a band in Loud And Quiet called (pronounced Alt-J). They sounded unlike anyone else to us, and now we are pleased to announced that we will be releasing the band’s debut AA single, ‘Bloodflood/Tessellate’ this coming October.

Before the band changed their name to the delta sign you get when you hold down the Alt and J keys on your computer, they were called Films, studying fine art at Leeds University together. They’ve since graduated and moved to Cambridge where they continue to make sophisticatedly patient music that fuses the vocals of Wild Beasts and Antony Hegarty with clever drums like those of recent Radiohead.

Bloodflood/Tessellate will be officially released on 10 October 2011, but you can already pre-order a copy at our webstore, here.

Marking a proper start to Loud And Quiet Recordings, to celebrate the record’s release we will be hosting a free-entry launch party at The Victoria, Dalston on October 6, with the help of special guests Old Forest and Warm Brains. It will be ∆’s first performance in the capital.

Full detail on the show can be found here.
