Wolf Alice has been nominated as one of the 12 artists shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize in the UK!

The Mercury Prize promotes the best of UK and Irish music and the artists who produce it. This is done primarily through the celebration of the 12 ‘Albums of the Year’.

The Mercury Prize for Album of the Year is the music equivalent to the Booker Prize for literature and the Turner Prize for art.

The main objectives of the Mercury Prize are to provide a snapshot of the year in music, to encourage debate and discussion about music, and to help introduce new albums from a variety of musical genres to a wider audience.

Wolf Alice’s latest album, My Love is Cool, won the Indie Breakthrough of the Year award at the AIM Independent Music Awards early September of this year. This is a fantastic achievement for Wolf Alice and we wish them all the luck!
