In September 2014, the British indie rock band Alt-J introduced their new album, “This Is All Yours”, which soared to the top of UK TOP10 with lightning speed.

On the eve of OK Go’s visit to Russia, BritishWave.ru talked with band bass player Tim Nordwind, asking him about music, concerts, movies and what he knows about Russia. Continue reading
