Alt-J’s Gus Unger-Hamilton catches up with Kyle Meredith to talk about The Dream, the band’s fourth album. The English artist discusses how using more voices in their songs adds deeper dimensions, and why the tracks’ characters seem to thrive on dramatic monologues.

Unger-Hamilton also touches on the recent Beatles documentary lent some inspiration and made him a bigger fan of the band. Elsewhere, he 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 LP.
