After last weeks on the road feature on Jake Bugg, Dean Chalkley's done it again and produced another cover and feature for NME magazine but this time Dean travelled to France to join Alt-J on their European tour. The article explores the stratospheric rise of the band's debut and Mercury Award winning album ' An Awesome Wave'. The NME article was written by new NME hot shot writer Jenny Stevens.
After catching the train from Kings Cross St Pancras, speeding over to Paris and then jumping on another train to the capital of Normandy the city of Evreux, Jenny interviewed the band whilst Dean and assistant Gideon Marshall set up an improvised 'studio' to shoot these and other unusual images of the band. They all then went to the bands gig that night where Dean shot the band in action. Check out the digital Edition of the magazine here.
