Getintothis has a pair of passes for readers to see Wild Beasts and Alt-J at the Academy. Get involved squares.
As post-modern goes the triangle is right up there.
In recent times Pythagoras‘ friend has replaced the vowel deficiency brigade of MGMT, HTRK, BLK JKS, PVT, MNDR and SBTRKT, becoming synonymous with the in-crowd, being adorned on t-shirts and fretboards alike.
And leading the three-sided scene is ∆ – or Alt-J – to their parents.
Taking their cues from the keyboard shortcut on an Apple Mac, the Leeds collective wrap reverb-wrapped soulful vox over brisky percussion and discordant melodies, but then bring beautiful softly-softly guitar into the mix making a racket which is both harmonic and heavy duty.
For all you three-sided squares out there, they play The O2 Academy on Saturday March 17 alongside main draw of the evening, Kendal-based Domino Records ultra-hip cats, Wild Beasts.
They don’t need any introduction as Getintothis has interviewed, reviewed and lauded their albums in our end of year round ups. They are a truly fine British guitar band – and how many of those are there about?
Anyways, keeping things triangular-themed, Getintothis has two pairs of passes up for grabs all you have to do is add us on Twitter, add the hashtag #triangle and answer the following question.
