Wolf Alice’s third album, Blue Weekend, was released in June to a bombardment of five-star reviews and lavish praise for the way it deftly intertwined its intimate lyrics with a widescreen indie-rock sound. It became the band’s first No1 album in the UK and earned them a third Mercury Prize nomination, all of which made crowning them as GQ’s Band Of The Year a somewhat easy task.

Their latest album, Blue Weekend, is now certified silver in the UK – it is the band’s first #1 album in the UK. The release brought Wolf Alice their third nomination for The Hyundai Mercury Prize ‘Albums of the Year’, which “celebrate and promote the best of British & Irish music recognizing artistic achievement across a range of contemporary music genres.”
