alt-J or ∆ formed after becoming friends at Leeds Uni back in 2007. They rose to fame after the incredible success of their Mercury Prize debut album, ‘An Awesome Wave’. Their second album ‘This Is All Yours’ went straight to #1 in the UK, and received a Grammy nomination. They have toured all around the world, perfecting their enchanting live set and selling out the iconic Madison Square Gardens in 2015. We can’t wait for the next album!
As we know from their track “Tesselate”, triangles are their favourite shape, and so this is reflected in their cool 3D design.

After a lengthy discussion at Yellow Bird HQ, we have would like to share our favourite track of 2016 with you… (sorry its a bit late, still recovering from the holidays!)
We hope you’ve all had a chance to admire the fantastic new additions to the project. It’s such a delight to have The Maccabees onboard – they’ve been long term friends of Trekstock, so we couldn’t wait to let them know about the history of YBP and how we’ve got involved.
Although the band have sadly moved on to new exciting solo projects this year, we’ve collected up some of our favourite tunes from the bands 10 year run, to share with you lot…
Early days… The Smoker!

This list could go on a while…
Better wrap it up with two sure-fire classics to remember one of the greatest indie rock bands to grace our ears. Go check their tee.
This unique design has come straight from the hands of the super talented Corin and Megan who are better known as Purity Ring.
After establishing a relationship at Field Day festival, the duo are helping raise money for Trekstock, to quote Corin “They are a rad organisation”.
Purity Ring arrived back in 2011, when the Corin and Megan came together to release their acclaimed first track “Ungirthed“. Their distinct, chilly R&B sound has found them fans across the world and seen them sign to 4AD Records. Their debut album, Shrines was released in July 2012, and the following year they collaborated with none other than Danny Brown for the track “25 Bucks“. Their second studio album, Another Entity was released in 2015.
One of the latest additions to the Yellow Bird collection comes from the LA based girl band Warpaint. After establishing a friendship at Field Day festival, this one’s quickly become a big time favourite
