Alt-J, que ya ganaron el premio Mercury, podrían ganar dos premios en los Ivor Novello 2013, tras conocerse las nominaciones.

Alt-J está nominados al mejor album, junto con Ben Howard y Lianne La Havas, que no creo que sean enemigos.

También piden ganar el premio a la mejor canción contemporánea, la formidable Fitzpleasure. También están nominados en esta categría las canciones de Plan B y los Maccabees, pero con menos posiblidades.

Se recuerda que Alt-J y su revolucionario “An Awesome wave” fue elegido por PLASTICOS Y DECIBELIOS como el mejor album del año 2012.

A la mejor canción parece claro triunfador Jake Bugg con su extraordinario ‘Two Fingers’.

Los premios se darán en el hotel Grovesnor de Londres, el próximo 16 de mayo.

Esta es la lista de nominaciones:
