Chart-topping Disclosure, formed by Reigate brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence, goes up against some of the biggest names in the music industry for a top accolade on Wednesday (October 30).

The duo’s album, Settle, is shortlisted for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize 2013 Album of the Year award and is up against acts including David Bowie, Arctic Monkeys and Jake Bugg.

Disclosure’s debut album was released in May and reached the top spot in the UK album chart on June 15, beating Queens of the Stone Age.

Last year’s Mercury Prize album of the year award went to Alt-J for An Awesome Wave. This year’s winner will be announced on Wednesday at 10pm.

  • Arctic Monkeys AM
