Thom Sonny Green

Pitchfork Avant-Garde,

Did both the success and pressure that came with being in Alt-J trigger the drummer Thom Sonny Green’s need to break out? It’s a good job that’s he’s found an oasis of self-expression. Although his musical landscape is not too dissimilar from his main group’s, his remarkable hip-hop complexities make you think Amon Tobin, Madlib or even Ulrich Schnauss – and they’re good for the soul too.
