Alt-J on The Beatles Inspiration, Male Chauvinistic Classic Rock, & Songs About Death

Alt-J’s Gus Unger-Hamilton catches up with Kyle Meredith to talk about The Dream, the band’s 4th album. The English artist discusses how the recent Beatles documentary lent some inspiration and becoming a bigger fan of the band, using more voices within their songs to add deeper dimensions, and the dramatic monologues that the characters within their song seem to thrive with. Unger-Hamilton also ponders about the band making a film one day, their penchant to sing about death and fandom of true crime, and the upcoming 10th anniversary of their debut.
