Alt-J formed while at Leeds University in 2007. The band’s unusual sound stems from the fact that due to living in student halls, where noise had to be kept to a minimum, they were unable to use bass guitars or bass drums. They were voted Best British Album and band of the year in 2012. The band’s symbol is the delta sign, ∆, which is traditionally used in scientific study to indicate “change” or “difference”. The ∆ symbol can be typed on an Apple Mac with the key sequence alt + J
