London Grammar @ Rock City

Nottingham indie-pop group London Grammar have been nominated for a Brit Award.

Following the release of their critically acclaimed second album Truth is a Beautiful Thing earlier this year, the three-piece have received the nod in the Best British Group category.

The nomination caps off a successful year for the trio after their chart topping success and biggest UK tour to date, which included a rapturous homecoming show at Nottingham’s Rock City.

However, they face stiff competition from fellow nominees including Gorillaz, who feature former Blur frontman Damon Albarn, indie favourites Wolf Alice, rock duo Royal Blood, and fellow indie-poppers The XX.

This year the Brit Awards take place on Wednesday February 21 at the O2 in London with comedian Jack Whitehall set to hold the prestigious bash.

Pop powerhouse Dua Lipa leads the way for most nominations at the event with a total of five, whilst Ed Sheeran is in contention for four and both J Hus and Rag n Bone Man are up for three.

One award has already been claimed however, with Drake collaborator Jorja Smith picking up the critics’ choice award.
