So I've seen some news posts about these guys on here, and I personally think they are fucking awesome. Their album An Awesome Wave is easily one of the best from last year and it got tons of acclaim from critics (they won the British Barclaycard Mercury Prize).

Here's some songs:

This band is terrible.

Oddly enough you have deltas all over your profile and their real band name is "∆".

For real though, they definitely take some time to sink in (at least they did for me) but once they do, they're beautiful. Their sense of melody as a collective is really what does it for me.

Django Django, Yeasayer, a bit of Hot Chip. Basically, if you like quirky indie rock with elements of pop thrown in, this band is for you. Love Awesome Wave, can't wait to see what's next for them.

Also, Radiohead, The XX, Last Dinosaurs

I bought their album one day on a whim, because so many people around my town have been raving about it. I usually don't buy albums unless I hear a few songs at least. I loved it immediately. I then found out that they are playing a show in April and the show was already sold out.

Yeah man, the beats on this thing is nuts. Especially when juxtaposed with the vocals. Very idiosyncratic band. My friend saw em live and was raving about them.
