Since their inception in 2007, Alt Track have cultivated a sound as unique as it is eclectic, mixing the rhythms of contemporary dance music with the energy and conscience of punk rock. From explosive but poetic bursts of politically charged electronica, to ambient IDM-laden soundscapes, Alt Track constantly seek to fuse their influences and cover a previously unexplored musical direction.

Informed equally by records such as Refused's 'The Shape Of Punk To Come', Bob Marley's 'Exodus', Radiohead's 'Kid A' and Massive Attack's 'Mezzanine', Alt Track use dance beats as the canvas for their musical landscapes, building a multitude of different textures and ideas within a track. Truly a band best appreciated live, rather than opting to hide behind laptops, you'll find them on the gig floor, with an energy more closely associated with a punk band. Their performances have been called 'A furious splurge of flailing energy', and they are said to '...seep confidence and have obviously honed their live craft on a level above most other unsigned acts.' The band keep a busy live schedule, regularly playing all over the UK to rave reviews from the likes of NME and The Fly Magazine, equally at home in a rock club or a squat party, electronic or as their acoustic alter-ego in a cafe, or on the street busking for some extra petrol money.

2009 saw the release of their self produced, self funded debut album 'Silence is Approval' which has recieved numerous glowing reviews. Radio One's Steve Lamacq called the opening track '...a very forceful, polemical piece of pop music', and The Fly described the record as '...an intricate D'N'B, trip-rock album with a conscience. If Bob Dylan and Slash went raving together, this is how the night would unfold'. Alt Track allow fans to pay what they like for the record, in order to reach as wide an audience as possible uninhibited by economics.
