De Britse indiepopband Alt-J lanceert de video voor de nieuwe single PLEADER, afkomstig van hun laatste plaat “Relaxer”. De band uit Leeds bestaat uit frontman Joe Newman, Gwil Sainsbury, Gus Unger-Hamilton en Thom Green. Ze wonnen met hun debuutalbum “An Awesome Wave” de Mercury Prize. Over PLEADER meldt Alt-J: “The last track on the record is based on Richard Llewelyn’s book How Green Was My Valley?, about a small mining community in nineteenth-century Wales. The song takes the form of a hymn, and so we went to Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire to record the boys’ choir and the organ there, to add a church feeling to the track. It is a long song, but we felt the sense of pride and hope it leaves by the end made it the right choice for ending the album.”
